These two workshops are an interactive exploration into the residents of Waltham Forest. Home Project will ask the people of the borough to reflect on their past and present experiences, their hopes for the future and connection to where they live, as they answer the question – what does home mean?
How do we connect with the space we live? and how does this space harbour these experiences?
Through a series of short films with residents and interviews with leading experts; the project will look at the lives of residents both old and new, shining a light on individual characters that show the broad spectrum of inhabitants, their contributions and how they have built their own legacies, how they have built a home, and what this has involved.
