About Memories For the Future 

Memories for the Future is a hyperlocal community-led programme that researches and responds to the intangible heritage of the people who shaped Peckham’s iconic Rye Lane.

Our starting point are Rye Lane’s iconic “Aunties”, women business leaders whose roles in Peckham exemplify the lived realities of migration into Britain and the experience of rebuilding lives as part of a diaspora.

Memories for the Future works to cherish and learn from the at risk histories of our community, exemplifying Britain’s complex relationships with the rest of the world and the foundational influence of women on the communities living/working on Rye Lane.
