The HISTORY SHOP is a social experiment curated by New Deal of the Mind – a pop-up workshop in which everyone is invited to participate.  Everyone has a story, and we want to hear yours.  In return, we will record, digitise, and if you wish, share your stories online, preserving your memories for future generations.  Whether you want to tell us about growing up in Deptford in the 60s or the Joy Division gig you’ll never forget, we’d love to hear from you.  There’s a lot you can do at the History Shop.  Explore the Programme below, and come on down.

TIME/IMAGE Curious how Britain looked in 1942?

TIME/IMAGE works with digital film archives. The British Council is providing support for TIME/IMAGE whilst they are working on a project to digitise up to 100 films from the British Council’s archive held at the BFI.  These films provide fascinating snapshots of the UK’s cultural, industrial and political heritage.  TIME/IMAGE will be in the History Shop with film treats galore.  Here’s what they’ve got going on:

Watch History:  Screenings of British Council Archive films from the 1940s and contemporary re-edits at:  1pm, and 6pm.

Edit History – Edit your own archive mash-up out of sequences of archive footage in the public domain. Edit on Final Cut or iMovie with the help of Time/Image’s filmmakers.

Brit Vox-Pops – Time/Image will be asking people the question- What is Britain to you? Responses will be filmed, creating an instant snapshot of Britain today to be archived online.  Have your say!

[At the Shop: 3rd – 6th,  8th – 12th August.  11am – 7pm]

One-off  TIME/IMAGE events: Make History: London 2011 – the documentary created by you

TIME/IMAGE is setting you the challenge of making a film for them in 6 days.  Inspired by the state of the nation piece, London 1942 (from the British Council’s film archive), TIME/IMAGE are asking you, the public, to take a camera phone, flip, or any kind of video device and film a moment in the day of your London life.  Once you’ve captured what you want to say about life today, you send the results to TIME/IMAGE who will edit a film, London 2011, from the clips.

  • Saturday 6th, 1 – 3pm: London 2011 Workshop
