New Memorial in Southwark
Southwark, London (UK)
Dickens in the Borough is a new collective including Southwark Council, in partnership with local residents and voluntary groups. Dickens in the Borough has started a fundraising appeal to create a monument to Charles Dickens’s literary works. The monument will celebrate key characters, themes, or texts, from ‘Little Dorrit’, ‘David Copperfield’ and other works that reference the local area, which Dickens new well in his boyhood. The collective will announce a competition for local artists to design the monument and the artwork will be installed in the new plaza adjoining Little Dorrit Church during 2012.
