Aural Histories – St Alfege

Project lead: Dr Andrew Knight-Hill and Kam Rehal

This interdisciplinary collaborative oral history project opens up the archive at St Alfege Church – a major asset of Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site – connecting it to the community.

Installed in a shop unit at Greenwich market, the project presents evocative soundscapes, and visual designs which respond to oral histories from the local community. The space also invites local residents and members of the public to leave their own oral history document.

We look forward to continued collaboration with the Heritage Engagement and Interpretation leads at St Alfege Church to explore how we can further share this project and future outcomes in the Greenwich community as well as within the physical setting of the church.
