We are really excited to have got off to a fantastic start with this amazing project. You can follow the progress of our volunteer researchers and find out about the project in more detail by visiting the Peoples Panorama blog.
The People’s Panorama is an ambitious project to create a community heritage resource recording and documenting the six-kilometre stretch of road from Aldgate to Stratford in East London. The project will celebrate the High Street at this historic point in it's development and act as a record of the route from central London to the 2012 Olympic Park.
The Panorama itself will combine photos of every building along High Street 2012, with fascinating information about the buildings' history and how they have been used through time.
We have a fantastic team of 26 volunteers currently researching the history of the buildings along High Street 2012. Once this feat of research is complete, we will be using the Panorama to inspire an exciting programme of adults learning activities, activities for older people, schools workshops and celebratory events. Keep an eye on our 'What's On' page from May for information about these activities and events.
