Aldgate East My Neighbourhood

Photography walks, creative writing, local history, oral histories, filmmaking

This creative community project brought people together to explore Aldgate East, Whitechapel and Spitalfields past and present. It was free and open to anyone who lives or works in the local area.

In 2019 we made a short film, Aldgate East Stories, with a group of local people. RSVP to the next screening at The Brady Centre, Friday 27 September at 11.30am  here

Aldgate East My Neighbourhood exhibition ran in Dec 2018 at the Idea Store Whitechapel.  This included participants' work, Brick Lane photobooth images by Heather McDonough and Rod Morris, and photographs by Sarah Ainslie and David Hoffman.  A further exhibition will run in 2019.

The project is funded through Tower Hamlets Community Cohesion Pilot Programme and the National Lottery Community Fund. It is a partnership of Four Corners, Alternative Arts/Photomonth and Swadhinata Trust.
