Poetic East-End Oral History Collection by Shanghati Literary Society

The Poetic East-End Oral History Collection illustrates the renaissance of various vibrant and dynamic cultural movements that emerged in post-war East London. It is the documentation of stories and struggles of communities that are underrepresented in the mainstream heritage institutions. This project is an attempt to preserve the hidden stories of East London which otherwise would be lost and forgotten. This project has been kindly funded by The Heritage Lottery Fund and supported by Tower Hamlets Local History Library and Archives.
