East London Lives 2012 – a Living Archive Launches

Today sees the launch of the East London Lives 2012, a digital archive project which aims to document some aspects of change in the lives of East Londoners towards the hosting of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The archive hosts content from research projects based at the University of East London and other contextualising material about London and specifically the five East London boroughs and the bid promises that were made about the impact of the Olympics.

Importantly the archive also contains a wealth of community generated content, including oral histories, image, video and interviews.

Below is a short video created by the project which gives an excellent feel for what the archive has done, and why it is such an essential resource going into the future:
