Abstract: [From summary] In 2012, the world was looking at Hackney as it hosted the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, a huge world event and massive force for regeneration in the area. Mapping the Change was conceived by Hackney Museum to map the huge changes taking place because of the Olympics and Paralympics and contribute to the Cultural Olympiad, a programme of cultural activities and projects to celebrate the Games. Working with residents from three Olympic Host Boroughs (Hackney, Waltham Forest and Tower Hamlets), Mapping the Change captured the voices and experiences of local people in response to the changes in Hackney through a range of creative activities including oral history, exhibitions, digital technology, journalism courses, a crowd-sourced film photography competitions and artworks. These responses will be accessioned into Hackney Museum's permanent collection where they will be held in perpetuity as a lasting legacy of the project.
