Through long-term intergenerational projects, Evidence of Us seeks to position people as experts in their own heritage by foregrounding local knowledge and supporting otherwise under-explored histories.

Sitting alongside the Fire Station archive, Evidence of Us will contain a wide range of creative and discursive engagements with heritage. Co-developed with artists and local communities, the programme will critically reconsider who has access to heritage and support people to write their own narratives.

Evidence of Us is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund
