The People’s Collection
The People’s Collection is a participatory digital archive that documents the collective legacy of the 1981 Uprisings in Brixton today. The archive demonstrates how the Uprisings have impacted on the lives of the people who live, work, love and play in Brixton.
This collaborative archive re-posits the voice with the people of Brixton and provide an intergenerational lens to the legacy of the Uprisings. Along with those who have a Lived Experience of the Uprisings, it documents how those who have come to live in Brixton since also experience its legacy today.
Contributions consist of anything that documents an experience of the Uprising over the last 40 years. This can include photos, film, interviews, letters, animations, voice notes and so on.
Contributions can be made via email or social media posts. The story behind each contribution is equally as important to the collection, so please include a brief explanation along with a name if you would like to be credited. If contributing via social media, use the hashtag #BrixtonPeoplesCollection or email contributions to email@example.com.
