It’s been a busy fortnight for the Brick Lane 1978 project. Our new team of volunteers visited Tower Hamlets Local History Library&Archives and the Bishopsgate Institute to learn more about researching archives, before diving into an oral history training session. They’ll carry these new skills to the next stage of the project: identifying and interviewing original Brick Lane activists. Here’s how they got on…
October saw the launch of the Brick Lane 1978 project. The gallery was packed-out with prospective volunteers eager to explore their local history. Against the backdrop of Paul Trevor’s breathtaking photographs, a lively talk with 1978 activists honed in on the importance of the project – all fuelled by scrumptious locally-sourced samosas.
Join us for the project kick off. Discover the story of Brick Lane 1978 and find out how you can get involved in documenting this watershed moment.
