We need talented volunteers to bring this project to life.
Gain skills, get inspired and shed light on an historic moment.
The first stage of the project offers opportunities to get involved in research, archiving, digitisation, indexing and oral history.
RESEARCH | OCTOBER 2019 – MAY 2020
Delve into a collection of never-before-seen photographs by Paul Trevor documenting the May 1978 anti-racist protests around Brick Lane. Use these images to research, identify and contact the activists that made the protests happen.
INTERVIEW | OCTOBER 2019 – MAY 2020
Get trained up in oral history interview techniques and record interviews with some of the activists identified in Paul Trevor’s photographs.
FILM | FEBRUARY 2020 – JULY 2020
Help produce a short documentary film about the May 1978 protests.
