East Village 2015-16
Speaking Out of Place
An ethnographic study of East Village based on in depth interviews with residents moving in to the ex-Athletes Village, complimented by a community photography project. Material from both is contained in London 2012 and the Post Olympic City (eds. Cohen and Watt) published by Palgrave May 2017. In addition, we worked with local young people to make a film about what the place meant to them. This can be downloaded from You Tube by typing in the project name. We also worked with Year 8 students at a local Academy School who created their own map and guide to the Olympic Park available at www.OurEast20.org. A report of the whole project is available to download from www.livingmaps.org.uk.
