Stories From The Square MileEvent type:
The City of London Festival has tasked young people to document the lives of older adults of the City of London, recording their experiences of the City and the Festival over the past 50 years, with help from the London Metropolitan Archives. The project aims to provide a creative and meaningful setting for shared learning between young people and older adults, whilst uncovering some of the City’s social history.
Admission will be free and located in an open-air exhibition surrounding the trees lining Cheapside over the entire month of the Festival.
This is a great chance to enjoy a life-affirming array of anecdotes and stimulating social history with 50 years and 50 stories, and explore the lesser known communities of the City of London.
