The Lost Stories of Ruskin Park

A project has been taking place in Ruskin Park which has included recording park users memories of the park. Podcasts can be found here. This is particularly interesting for us as we embark on the 'Mill Memories' project.

Brixton based (not for profit) company Embrace Cooperation Ltd is holding a free exhibition and celebration to mark the end of “The Lost Stories of Ruskin Park” project. The exhibition will take place at “198 Contemporary Arts and Learning”, Brixton, from 6:30pm to 8:30pm Tuesday 4th December 2012. The project is funded by a Heritage Lottery Fund Grant.

The exhibition aims to bring all the different aspects of the project together to end with a bang! The exhibition includes the first opportunity to see the project’s 10 minute film, consisting of a series of interviews with local residents about their memories of the park. Historical and contemporary images of the park and the project will also be on display. Live music will be performed by local band The Corsairs and a buffet dinner will be provided.

The number of places is limited so book your place quickly.
