In celebration of International Women’s Day, we want you to nominate an inspiring Lewisham girl or woman as part of our Lewisham Legends project. Who has made a difference in your borough? Lewisham is proud to stand up for equality, promoting the values that are important to our community. At the heart of this are people, our Lewisham Legends past and present who have had the courage to shake things up for a positive impact. We want you to put forward your local legends and trailblazers to be celebrated through new public murals in Spring 2022. These could be anyone from musicians and sporting stars, to Lewisham activists and your local community heroes.
