Celebrating social history
with the craft of digital storytelling.
Young people ages 11- 19 from Priory Court Housing Estate Community in Waltham Forest were invited to craft and film their own spoken-word performance in a 3 session 'bootcamp' as well as one-on-one mentoring.
The project is funded by Urban By Nature and Clarion Futures, and partnered with WorthUnlimited Waltham Forest.
The Tower Storeys: It's My Home Project was nominated for a TPAS Excellence in Community Action Award in 2021. The National TPAS Awards celebrate the remarkable volunteers, housing staff and contractors who bring lasting change to communities across England.
“It’s My Home”, is a 36-piece socially distanced musical extravaganza written and performed by the residents of the Stocksfield Road, Marlowe Road and Northwood Tower housing estates in the London Borough of Waltham Forest and the Project Zero E17 youth champions.
