Calling Hackney residents aged 50+. Tell us your story!

If you are aged 50+, we’d love to hear your story.

Following the success of last year’s Windrush project, we are running another Connect Hackney media group summer project.

We will be producing a commemorative booklet and two short films about Hackney’s older residents.

We are keen to capture stories from the 1930s to the present day.

Our themes are:
• The NHS over the years – especially in Hackney
• How Hackney has changed
• Disabled people’s stories and experience
• African people’s stories and experience
• Turkish/Kurdish people’s stories and experience
• The Vietnamese community’s stories and experience
• LGBT+ people’s stories and experience.

If you have a story to tell, or if you would like to volunteer to help with research, interview others and take photographs, please get in touch.

Sessions start on Wednesday July 24th and run Wednesdays and Thursdays at Kingsland Hub, Haggerston, until Thursday August 29th.

We will launch the booklet and film at a special celebratory event in October to coincide with the International Day of Older Person’s.

We hope you will get involved in this exciting initiative.

Free of charge, no previous experience required.
