How far have you travelled? How did you get here?
The voyages we go on.
The people we meet.
The stories we share.
From the small everyday journeys out of our armchairs to the epic journeys across countries and cultures
each one leaves its tiny trace.

Local older people from Tower Hamlets (linked to the Bromley-by-Bow Centre and the Fern Street Settlement) worked with pupils from Clara Grant Primary School and Old Palace Primary School in 2016 to create an original performance about life’s journeys, migration and transitions. The group used storytelling, movement, video and recorded sound to share their stories. 

Led by Magic Me artist Emma Higham and video artist Chuck Lowry.

This project was made possible by the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, the Lucas Tooth Trust and the Aldgate and All Hallows Foundation.
