Boundaries of Diversity: Migration, Regeneration and Community Heritage in the Royal Docks.
Organised by the the Archives service at the University of East London, "Boundaries of Diversity" will be a month long exhibition and series of events in June including workshops, talks and family events exploring issues of migration, regeneration and the community both within the Royal Docks and more broadly in East London. In collaboration with colleagues at the University and external partners including the Oral History Society, this series of events and exhibitions born out of our work with traditional archival and oral history sources exploring the issues of boundaries and diversity within the local context. A month long exhibition will be staged at the UEL Archives in Docklands and Stratford showcasing work from our Tate Lives projects in North Woolwich and Silvertown and the notions of what is meant by the "boundaries" within aboth the built environment and personal contexts. We will also explore the role and impacts of migration with a local context.
