I co-direct an oral history co-op called On the Record. Our projects have seen us bringing the rich social, personal and political history of London to life. We have gathered memories from places as diverse as Speakers’ Corner in Hyde Park, community projects like Centerprise (Hackney) and the First Neighbourhood Co-operative Nursery (Walthamstow), two historic London hospitals and Brompton Cemetery. We have recorded orators and hecklers, community activists and literacy students, specialist medical staff and patients, parents and childcare workers, gravediggers and beekeepers. We work in partnership with leading archives such as Bishopsgate Institute. We share the stories we gather through creative, high quality productions: podcasts, artworks, books, exhibitions, websites and audio walks. 


 


As well as running our own projects, we provide consultancy and training to ensure the success of many more, including Tape Letters, for sound art organisation Modus Arts, Becoming Fathers: Reproductive Journeys in Malawi, run by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and the University of Amsterdam, The Wornington Word: A People’s History of the Wornington Green Estate W10 for Renegade Theatre, Arming All Sides: the Arms Trade in the First World War for Campaign Against Arms Trade and numerous projects for the Royal Parks.
