Collaborations

With BANG Edutainment

Our journey began earlier this year in collaboration with BANG Edutainment,  We had the privilege of working alongside seven remarkable young volunteers who dedicated a total of 60 volunteer hours to the We Wear Heritage Project.

These enthusiastic individuals honed their oral history skills, delving into captivating interviews with elders. They explored the stories behind the garments they once wore, capturing precious memories for posterity.

Equipped with sound recording and editing expertise, our volunteers crafted audio gems. These snippets resonate with the echoes of the past, bridging generations through shared experiences. The volunteers also used their new knowledge during creative heritage sessions with their peers.

Soon, their journey will continue at the Brent Museum. There, they’ll explore the hidden treasures stored in the archives, and their digital outputs might find a permanent home within the museum’s hallowed walls.
