Drop in to artist Alda Terracciano’s installation Zelige Door on Golborne Road at Tate Exchange and add your story. Zelige Door explores various aspects of Moroccan heritage and culture. It was produced in collaboration with members of the local community who participated in a series of memory sessions focused on people’s everyday life.
Your memories will be recorded and added to a databank as part of Alda’s evolving work on London Memory Routes.
This event is programmed by Queen Mary University London, a Tate Exchange Associate.
About Queen Mary University London
QMUL is a global university which is committed, through its recruitment, teaching, and public engagement activities, to enhancing the lives of the people of east London and beyond. Our collaborative projects with community organisations focus on building resilience, inviting reflection on shared challenges, and encouraging community cohesion in one of the most diverse areas of the UK. QMUL has a long history of working with arts and culture to benefit local communities and address complex global challenges. The People’s Palace, opened by Queen Victoria in 1887, was originally a community venue where people of the East End could enjoy dance classes, organ recitals, donkey shows and art exhibitions, as well as gain skills in what are now known as the ‘creative industries’ – tailor’s cutting, woodwork, photography, and needlework. Today, QMUL continues to harness the radical power of art to change the world. Our arts and cultural activities embody QMUL’s values of diversity, inclusion, and community engagement.
