Windrush Monument – Unveiling in 2022

The national Windrush Monument at Waterloo Station will be a permanent tribute to a generation of arrivals from the Caribbean to Britain – from the arrival of MV Empire Windrush in 1948 and in the decades that followed.

The four artists shortlisted to design the monument are all of Caribbean descent and include world renowned, established and up and coming artists working across the visual arts.

Over the summer the public will be encouraged to consider the proposals. The winning design is planned to be revealed in Black History Month in October 2021 and the monument is expected to be unveiled on Windrush Day 2022.
