Kamal Chunchie Way and the act of renaming

05 July - 26 July

Following on from our ‘Power Podcasts’ series, for LFA2022 we're sharing five new stories, exploring the key people and projects shaping the past, present and future of the Royal Docks.

From City Hall and Kamal Chunchie Way to Tate and Lyle and The Factory Project and UTC, we hope by listening to these conversations you will learn more about the Royal Docks and the people and projects shaping the area.

For our third episode, we explore Kamal Chunchie Way and the act of renaming, with Sophie Hardcastle and Asif Shakoor.
Sophie is Head of Engagement at Street Space. Street Space work with people to reimagine their streets & spaces to make them feel safer, bring joy & social connection. Asif is an independent scholar. He studied at University of East London. His grandfather, Mahomed Gama, enlisted in the Mercantile Marine and arrived at the Royal Victoria Dock in 1917. He has presented research at national conferences and local events.


We'll be releasing one conversation per week so keep your eyes peeled on the LFA Media Section (click the link). Alternatively, you will be able to find the episodes on our Building Sounds podcast feed via Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify Pocket Casts, or by searching for ‘Building Sounds’ wherever you normally get your podcasts.
