Mapping local history on the border of the 2012 Olympic site

The video clip above shows the work that we’ve carried out during the UrbanBuzz project that we completed in December 2008, and which led to the creation of Mapping for Change. The video shows the work that we’ve been doing in Hackney Wick, where we collected local information about community resources that were lost to the Olympic site.

The video features Theo, our intern, who explains how the map was compiled and how it was constructed. You can see how engaged the local participants are in the process of mapping. One of the important aspect for us is to engage all members of the communities, from a wide range of ages – and in this case, local memories where captured on the map!
