Hackney Routes

Hackney Routes

Hackney Routes is a project which explores and records the stories and histories of Hackney residents, in its initial phase it has worked primarily with participants from African and Caribbean backgrounds.

Community workshops have helped to recruit a volunteer steering group which is conducting interviews with local people.

The Steering Group are working to collect artefacts, documents, quotes, and comments.  Over the next year they will develop an exhibition based around the themes and stories that have emerged from the workshops, and will produce materials which will go into the collection at Hackney Archives.

Hackney Routes is led by Every Generation Foundation, and the steering group will receive support and training from staff from Hackney Museum and Hackney Archives.
