Lewisham Youth Theatre were after an archival site for their 2015 community youth theatre project.
When visitors arrive at the site they are greeted with a friendly message which encourages them to ‘start’ exploring the site. They are then taken through a series of historical maps showing how the area has changed over time, followed by the interactive map. Here they can access the histories of the key buildings around the area. Each building page give visitors the chance to navigate through historical photographs, watch archival video footage, and listen to recordings of local residents made especially for the project.
Visitors also have the opportunity to leave comments about the buildings history, opening up the opportunity for community discussion about how the area has changed over time.
