For the people, by the people
“The seven In Living Memory projects uncovered a range of exciting histories that are for, about, and by the people of Lewisham. People’s History is an inclusive, democratic, and empowering enterprise, and these projects produced histories that are as diverse and inspirational as Lewisham itself.”
Dr John Price, Senior Lecturer in the Department of History at Goldsmiths and In Living Memory Academic Lead.
Each project not only gathered new stories of Lewisham’s past, but each has created a range of striking creative interventions that unfolded in all corners of the borough throughout 2022, and beyond.
Explore the In Living Memory digital archive and a series of 3D scans of some of Lewisham’s most historically significant, yet lesser known spaces. Each space has been populated with research and creative responses from each project, forming a virtual museum of the borough.
