The Cut - an oral histroy project by [SPACE]

SPACE has received funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund for a major new artist led project in Hackney Wick.

Over 8 months, from September 2010, oral historian, Lisa Rigg, will work with SPACE and artists to capture and then present the outcomes in March 2011, storing the histories at Hackney Museum and the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The artists will engage with diverse groups of local people in these areas through collaborative and participatory processes. Spaces for dialogue will be created within communities, through which divergent histories and aspirations for the future may be explored. The programme will build on SPACE's current collaborations, such as Hackney Wick Festival, to create initiatives that will be realised in both highly visible and socially embedded ways.
