Trader Tales is a project celebrating the people and the storied history of Deptford Market. Staff from the Library at Deptford Lounge interviewed market traders via sound recording and 3D scans and crafted the material into a 16 minute film. The film played at Deptford Lounge throughout March 2024 as part of an exhibition of work from talented local artists.
