Take part in A Hackney Autobiography

Borough wide

On the Record is looking for volunteers to record and research memories and publications associated with Centerprise, a unique cultural institution that operated in Hackney from 1971 – 2012. We want to recruit a diverse group of volunteers of different ages, backgrounds and levels of experience. Volunteers receive free training and ongoing support in oral history methodologies, archiving and research.

Centerprise was a groundbreaking community centre in Hackney (established in 1971.) It hosted a bookshop, publishing project, reading centre, café, youth club, crèche and more all under one roof in Dalston. It not only sold books, it made it possible for local people to write and publish their own works of poetry, autobiography and history.
