Kensington Narrators' Archive Wins Engagement Award from Birkbeck
On 27 March 2019, Birkbeck scholars and collaborators celebrated the Best of Public Engagement Awards. From the site:
This award recognises projects that engage and empower communities and wider society, celebrating how local, national and international communities shape our work.
Winner: Dr Julia Laite (Department of History, Classics and Archaeology), in collaboration with Christina Sealy (Theatre Studies & English Lit, BA 2016) and KensingtonNarrators.org; North Kensington Archive and Heritage Project
Dr. Laite and Birkbeck are supporting North Kensington community leaders as they respond to long-term archiving and preservation needs after the Grenfell tragedy. 'Kensington Narrators' engage and empower the local community to preserve their history, and develop their own narrative. A partnership with Bishopsgate Institute ensures a permanent home to the Archive, which includes the community’s artistic response to the fire, as well as contributions which demonstrate the Kensington community's vibrancy and resilience.
