Thames Festival Trust is an arts organisation delivering festivals, stand-alone commissions, river-based events, heritage projects and education programmes. We have a twenty-one-year track record of using learning, culture and creativity to amaze, excite and inform. Our work helps bring communities together, originally around the River Thames, and now in cities across the UK and the world. The Trust is committed to producing excellent work and we strive to improve access and increase diversity across the Arts & Culture sector.
Thames Festival Trust are delivering ‘The Islanders’ project that seeks to preserve the industrial and community heritage of Silvertown and North Woolwich.
An enthusiastic team of local volunteers have carried out four guided research sessions in the Newham archive. They are also collecting oral histories, creating an exhibition, short film, reminiscence sessions, podcasts and an accompanying education programme.
If you would like to be part of this project by volunteering or offering your memories and taking part in all the fantastic events please contact the Project Manager James King on the email address below.
