The cities are changing, and new borders are being drawn in terms of who lives inside and outside them. On the outskirts of London, a loose community of artists and misfits have come together to choose the free life on the periphery. 'Here for Life' engages them in an open, participatory and performative process based on their own thoughts and experiences. A democratic approach, which creates an open and collective narrative about a place and the people who built it. But the pressure of norms and the ubiquitous gentrification of the city are never far away.
