Tate Lives: Silvertown and North Woolwich, Past & Present at the London Festival of Architecture

"Stories from the land, water and people" Tate Lives 2 civic engagement will have an exhibition 12th to 16th June at the UEL Archives. In fact, the Royal Docks is one of four neighbourhoods included in the LFA's core programme this year. All are welcome to contact if they wish to contribute to Tate Lives. This could be a talk, a memory, a story, a picture, a video, any piece of history about the docks you have and it will be displayed in a living history! Tate Lives began in 2016 when RDCV contacted the University of East London Archives with the desire to build a local holding place for the rich heritage of the area. It is designed as a way to preserve the oral and visual history of people in the Docks, and to creatively share these stories in a creative and less formal manner. Ultimately, it helps people reconnect with their own past, with relatives and stories they never knew, and with the pasts of newcomers looking to share their identities. more on the back story can be read in our February newsletter AND! checkout the video from last year at the Ferry Festival More details at the following links: LFA Events page LFA Tate Lives page Evenbrite Directions to Tate Lives:
