On the grass between Tate and the Bankside 123 site, there is a great exhibiition, "Shrinking Childhoods"

They say
"A thought-provoking outdoor art installation for which 1,000 young people have worked with the charity Kids Company and Tate Modern to replicate their experience of life in inner-city neighbourhoods. "

I am not sure what to say... but I agree that the works are sometimes moving. One room is a classroom, with very evocative, jangled classroom sounds from loudspeakers. But I am sure everyone will find 1 installation that will resonate with them. Recommended.
