Situated in the Eastbury Ward of Barking, East London, this community oral history project celebrates the voices and experiences of local residents who have long, and more recent connections to the area. The project aims to document and share participant’s oral histories about living, working, and growing-up in the borough from the early 20th century to the present day.
This exhibition is the culmination of a series of workshops and interviews which took place from October 2018 until July 2019. The audio stories were collected as part of those sessions, and will be preserved at the Archive and Local Studies Centre at Valance House.
Eastbury’s Treasured Memories is led by Positive Change Consultancy and funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund.
