In the time since the Heygate Estate at the Elephant and Castle was emptied out (with the exception of some remaining leaseholders), it has led an active afterlife. Perhaps most notably it has been a favoured film and TV location for directors seeking gritty urban decay. In Harry Brown (2009) for instance it features as a crime-dominated riot zone in need of some vigilante violence from Michael Caine. In the real world though this dystopian vision has not materialised. Rather there has been an explosion of creativity, with the whole estate turned into an open air street art gallery with a garden project, storytelling sessions, fashion shoots and, on New Years Eve, a big rave. Oh and last June it was visited by Completely Naked, a kind of naturist performance art flashmob.
