Tubular Bells and Copper Flowers Project 



Look out for our banners in Newham parks and The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The artwork for the banners, created by community groups including: SubCo Trust Elders, aaa zone Transitional Art Group, Keir Hardie Children's Centre, and Selywn Primary School; was inspired by the experiences of people who took park in the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Opening ceremonies. Audio clips from the interviews with 2012 volunteers, along with a co created podcast can be accessed by using the QR code on the corner of the banners. 








Becoming Becontree 



The Becoming Becontree website is now live. In order to celebrate the centenary of the first residents moving into the Becontree Estate in 1921, we carried out oral history interviews with current and former residents. The website which features an online exhibit, is based on the oral histories we collected. Please click here to view the website.
