Are you over 60 and local to the East End?

We’re commissioning local light artist Martin Richman to explore memories of the East End from older generations and would love to invite you to tell us what East London means to you.

We encourage you to bring a memento, this could be a physical object, a photograph or even a vivid description of a memory that ties you to East London. Your east end memories will be explored over a series of sessions.  These sessions will take place online via Zoom in line with government guidelines from 1pm – 3pm, starting on Mon 25 Jan.

At the end of the sessions, Martin will create a light installation which will live at Rich Mix, inspired by your memories.

Rich Mix local Martin Richman has loved attending our events over the years but noticed he was often the eldest in the audience. In a bid to connect older communities with the power of culture and creativity, something Rich Mix pioneers in Tower Hamlets, Martin will run a series of workshops with Heritage Learning Facilitator Halima Khanom to tease out personal histories from those that know East London best. Participants will draw upon personal objects and memories which connect their own lives to East London. Martin, a visual artist, will then use these as a basis to form a permanent light installation that reflects the history and dynamism of East London.
