Description

Café ODYSSEY: The coffee shop to evade the caffeine-curse of gentrification

Café ODYSSEY is a critical intervention that takes the form of a pop-up coffee shop. This is a café with a difference. The coffee is free, however, coffee drinkers get a specially designed receipt, a map, which shows different trails, shops and organisations that all, in one way or another, contribute to the contested narrative of gentrification in the area.

The goal of the project is to highlight local identity and celebrate its rich diversity. People who take the trail can discover hidden gems, local places, people, businesses and organisations which shape Peckham’s cultural identity. The project aims to promote social cohesion and place attachment to counteract the alienating effects of gentrification. There are different points along the trails where participants can encounter and build relationships with the local communities, social enterprises, galleries, artists and residents.

Café ODYSSEY offers a very different experience from TripAdvisor. Please feel free to join us to celebrate the local diverse cultures by grabbing a free coffee at Café ODYSSEY and start your bespoke journey in Peckham co-designed among trusted locals.

This time will be the second round of this socially engaged and collaborative design intervention, and we welcome all to explore local identity and celebrate the rich diversity in Peckham. Check out our website for the lovely moments we had with our visitors in March 2018!
