For more information about the project, check out the project website www.creative-generation.org.uk

Creative Generation is an intergenerational participatory audiovisual pilot project designed and delivered by Big Bang Lab aiming to create links between communities of residents living in Housing Estates and neighbourhoods in London, starting in Tulse Hill.

Creative Generation is aiming to restore a sense of commonplace and a better understanding of each other’s narratives beyond age, cultural or religious differences in order to build a better future. Some stories can get lost forever so archiving the conversations and interviews on video is important for the community and for future generations. This project is a combination of creative oral history with civic lead journalism using video as a tool to come up together with new solutions to old problems.

Big Bang Lab (www.bigbang-lab.com) is a leading cultural-social enteprise working from creative consultancy to participatory media production with a vision of transforming knowledge and collective wisdom for social change. We facilitate public intervention training programmes, and events using collective forms of digital content production via music and crowdsourced video methodologies. Our vision is to connect individuals, communities and organisations to design together common visions for a shared future. We also run interactive events and open debates or crowdversations to engage the public in a dynamic way on topics around culture, creativity and innovation for social change! join our network
