On Sunday 9th February Shoreditch Youth Forum visited the Building Exploratory to carry out some research and make a film for their 'Heroes' project. Our Head of Education Janet used the exhibition pieces to explain to the young people how Hackney's built environment has developed from prehistoric times and why it looks like it does today.
Janet said 'We had some stimulating discussion - the youth forum were very well informed!'. The young people also shared their fascinating Hackney-based family histories and used some of the Building Exploratory maps and photos to carry out further research.
The groups resulting work will be on show to the public at The Bridge Academy on 27th January, 4:30-7:30pm.
