Photography walks, creative writing, local history, oral histories, filmmaking
This creative community project brings people together to explore Aldgate East, Whitechapel and Spitalfields past and present. It is free and open to anyone who lives or works in the local area.
In 2019 we are making a short film, and offering practical filmmaking skills. Interested in participating or volunteering? Register your interest and come along to the launch event.
Aldgate East My Neighbourhood exhibition ran in Dec 2018 at the Idea Store Whitechapel. This included participants’ work, Brick Lane photobooth images by Heather McDonough and Rod Morris, and photographs by Sarah Ainslie and David Hoffman. A further exhibition will run in 2019.
The project is funded through Tower Hamlets Community Cohesion Pilot Programme, with partners Four Corners, Alternative Arts/Photomonth and Swadhinata Trust.
