Bethnal Green Memorial Project

In 2014, I project managed the Bethnal Green Memorial Project, a Heritage Lottery funded collaboration between the University of East London, the Bishopsgate Institute, Bethnal Green Library, and the Stairway to Heaven Memorial Trust. We recorded and preserved the history of the 1943 Bethnal Green tube disaster, collecting and curating information on the event and its aftermath from survivors and relatives of the victims, culminating in several outputs: public engagement events, a travelling exhibition, a website, a guidebook, and an education pack for schools. You can visit the monument to the victims of the disaster at Bethnal Green tube station, next door to the library, from which you can also borrow the recorded walking tour guide.
