People in a London street



The GLA’s Community Engagement team is working with community groups across the capital to celebrate the contribution of the Polish community to London over the last 100 years. 

#MyLondyn is one of a series of activities to commemorate the the 100th anniversary of Polish independence. The brainchild of Jola Piesakowska Jackson, the online photo exhibition aims to capture the history and experiences of the Polish community in London over the last 100 years. 

You can contribute to this exhibition and by sharing the personal photo(s) that captures your London story. These photos will become part of an online archive. In November 2018 we will launch a #MyLondyn exhibition at City Hall, where a selection of submitted photographs will be displayed.
