MA student Daniela Couling is conducting oral history research on people who worked at Bankside Power Station, now the Tate Modern.

“My investigation explores the individuals, focusing on collecting, retrieving and highlighting the voice of the labourer,” she says.

She is hoping to make contact any previous workers from Bankside, but particularly people of the Windrush generation who worked there.
