Are you an east London local who is interested in learning about your area’s history and visiting archives? Do you want to learn new skills? Would you like to get to know new people in your area, and work together as a group to be part of a major local history project?
Bow Arts are looking for people to be part of the Community Steering Group for their latest heritage project Raw Materials: Plastics, a Heritage Lottery Funded project. Raw Materials is an ongoing research project led by the Nunnery Gallery at Bow Arts. We are exploring the industrial heritage of the River Lea through a series of materials. Each year we take a different material as our inspiration: Raw Materials: Wood ran across 2017 and Raw Materials: Textiles in 2018; Raw Materials: Plastics will run from November 2018 to summer 2019.
This is a voluntary role with flexible hours, running for the duration of the project.
