The exhibition title was taken from the company name and motto of the London Necropolis Railway which carried coffins and mourners from Waterloo to Brookwood Cemetery in Surrey.
Necropolis involves two artists, Cherry Pickles and Alexander Lumsden, who will be exhibiting their work and running a related series of workshops for young people who might ordinarily feel excluded from the opportunity to be involved with art.
The workshops will take place in several different locations, including at the Prince's Drawing School Foundation studios at Trinity Buoy Wharf.
The project is an attempt to raise young disadvantaged people's self-esteem and encourage them to develop a more positive outlook for their future.
