received funding from the Heritage Lottery
Fund for a major new artist led project in Hackney
Over 8 months, from September 2010, oral historian, Lisa
Rigg, will work with SPACE and artists to capture and
then present the outcomes in March 2011, storing the histories at
Hackney Museum and the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The artists will engage with diverse groups of local people in
these areas through collaborative and participatory processes.
Spaces for dialogue will be created within communities, through
which divergent histories and aspirations for the future may be
explored. The programme will build on SPACE's current
collaborations, such as Hackney Wick Festival, to create
initiatives that will be realised in both highly visible and
socially embedded ways.
