RDCV is building a resource of information about the Royal Docks, its heritage, its communities and its opportunities for community-led projects.
In 2017 and 2018 RDCV partnered with the University of East London to launch Tate Lives, a living history project about the Royal Docks. This roaming exhibition brought to light hundreds of photos and stories about the Docks and its people, turning the archive into an interactive experience for all who encountered it.
We are currently working on public events that build connections between local people and spark ideas for community-led projects. This is part of a wider aim of setting up a CIC to support community wealth building which is a process further described in the RDCV publication below:
