Street Party Memory Lounge

We have been busy collecting stories for the project and will be announcing the summer schedule for the exhibition and events programme soon.

In the meantime, we are representing at the Olive Road Street Party on Sunday 3 June.

Volunteers from the Generations of Learning project will be hosting the Memory Lounge, inviting locals to share their memories of Cricklewood.

The free event includes craft activities, bouncy castle, and other entertainments. Check out the NW2 website for more details. Come along and enjoy the day, learn more about the project, and share your memories.

If you have any memorabilia relating to Cricklewood in the 1950s or 1960s that you’d be happy to let us take a look at, we’d be delighted to chat to you on the day. This might be a photograph showing the way the area used to look, a newspaper cutting, a programme from the local cinema or from a sporting event.

Welcome the film maker!

We are delighted to announce the appointment of our project Film Maker, who will be producing a short film on the Generations of Learning project.

Dominique Murphy-de Neef is an up and coming documentary film maker and mixed-media artist. She already has many credits to her name, in genres including comedy fiction and alternative cinema. Her most recent film SANCTIONED, a powerful short documentary, was nominated for Best World Short Film at IndieCork 2017 .

Dominique has Irish and Dutch heritage and recently graduated from the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham. She is looking forward to creating a film that celebrates the contributions migrants have made to Cricklewood, London, and beyond.

The film will feature Elders who have volunteered to share their migrant story with the project. If you are from the Pakistani or Irish community and migrated to Cricklewood in the 1950s or 1960s and would like to take part, please get in touch at the details below. You don’t need to be still living in the area, as we are keen to record the variety of personal journeys before, during, and after Cricklewood.

We are also still looking for young volunteers interested in being part of the project.
