Two Potato: an oral history of children's play in North Kensington A new documentary film made by Colville Primary School pupils, which was launched at the Gate Cinema on December 9, can now be watched on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LMcSag7ItZE
The film documents the history of children's play in North Kensington, featuring interviews with local people along with beautiful archive images of the area, capturing the joy and struggles of childhood in the area. The project explores aspects of play for pre-teen children including street play, playgrounds, singing games and rhymes and board games. In short, what people played, where they played and how they played.
The film, interviews and children's writing are available on the project website. For further information please visit www.onepotato.org.uk Digital Works City Living Local Life
