Jacob Lawrence: Migration Mural at Waterloo


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.


Help to paint a giant mural under the railway arches next to Waterloo Station, inspired by Jacob Lawrence's The Migration Series.

In a series of 60 paintings, Lawrence told his community's story of African Americans who journeyed from the rural south to the urban north between the World Wars in search of a better life, a movement known as the Great Migration.

Carrying on the mural painting tradition of Feliks Topolski, and as part of Black History Month, come to the South Bank and help to recreate scenes of an epic journey under the railway.
