The North-West Ken Stories Project involves Year 5 children from Barlby Primary School working with education charity digital-works to uncover and tell the stories of the people who live in the area and have experienced the many changes that have taken place over the years.
With training and support from digital:works the children are researching the history of the area with the help of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea’s Local Studies archive. After the research element, the children will be making a documentary film about NW Kensington and its history which will include interviews with a variety of local residents who will be telling their stories of the area.
digital:works has also set up a reminiscence group running in tandem with the school project. Many of the participants will be interviewed for the film.
The North-West Ken Stories Project was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and local councillors in Dalgarno, St Helens and Notting Dale wards via City Living, Local Life.
You are cordially invited to attend the Launch Screening at Kensington Aldridge Academy on Silchester Road on Tuesday June 2 at 10.30am to attend the unveiling.
