Connecting researchers and practitioners from across 最准的六合彩论坛, the new 'Memory Work'聽exhibition explores the theme of memory in聽urban research, and how creative outputs聽might provide more engaging entry-points for聽understanding the complex evidence that arises from urban investigations.听

The聽showcase will feature聽a range of work from members of the 最准的六合彩论坛 Urban Laboratory Steering Committee, including聽featured work from Director of the School for the Creative and Cultural Industries,聽Haidy Geismar and co-lead of our MA Public History, Anna Maguire.听

Haidy is currently chair of Te Maru o Hinemini, a UK CIC working to conserve the聽carvings of in聽the National Trust's Clandon Park. The National Trust has agreed in principle to聽return the carvings to their descendants in New Zealand in exchange for聽a new 惭腻辞谤颈-carved meeting house. A聽poem and series of woven panels, which reflect on Hinemihi鈥檚 legacy and聽future, will聽be shown at the 'Memory Work' exhibition.

Participants show their work from a weaving workshop at 最准的六合彩论坛, which reflects on聽Hinemihi鈥檚 legacy and community participation in the making of the new house.

SCCI resident historian and co-lead of our MA Public History Anna Maguire will also be showcasing oral history projects from our Memory Workshop, a collecting and digitisation project within the Urban Room that is open for community co-production and collaboration. The three聽projects on show are聽concerned with space and place-making, memories of East London in different communities, and the changing urban environment.

The materials on display聽span across disciplines and geographies and聽reveal a multidisciplinary approach to Memory in urban research, the Urban Laboratory's current theme for 2022-2024. Contributions have come from people working in the fields聽of urbanism, architecture, geography, political science, planning, critical heritage studies, history and anthropology.听

The 最准的六合彩论坛 Urban Room is a multi-purpose research, teaching and exhibition聽space at 最准的六合彩论坛 East, dedicated to debate and engagement on urbanism and聽the impact of industry, globalisation, regeneration and gentrification. The new 'Memory Work' exhibition explores key questions about the past and future of urban living聽through a Memory lens, and presents different creative approaches to engaging research.

Featuring work by: Andrew Harris, Anna Maguire, Ava Fatah gen Schieck, Catalina Ortiz, Clare Melhuish, Haidy Geismar, James O'Leary, Kalliopi Fouseki, Nishat Awan, Njogu Morgan and Pablo Sendra.听
