The Hackney Cut: Oral Histories

Do check out this really interesting project that provides a collection of short excerpts from the oral histories of people who live or work along the Hackney Cut: 

The recordings were made last year by a group of local volunteers were trained at SPACE by Dr Toby Butler (an oral historian from the Raphael Samuel History Centre). The oral histories that inspired the commissioned artists were recorded across Hackney in homes, community spaces, at SPACE and on a narrow boat on the Lea Navigation Canal itself.
