My East End Memories

20 May 2010

Have you lived in the East End all your life, or how does living hear now fit in with your past experiences? Do you want to find out more about the local area from friends, family and neighbours?

Come along to this pair of workshops led by leading oral historian, Anna Davin (author of Growing Up Poor: Home, School and Street in London 1870-1914) and find out about how to interview and record life stories. In the time between the two events you will have the opportunity to record your own interviews, and then bring them back to share with the rest of the group. Copies of your recordings can be archived with the Bishopsgate Institute, allowing you to add your own voice to the history of the area.
