Holding the Baby

Holding the Baby

Share your memories of parenting and childcare in the East End for an oral history project

If you lived in Newham or Tower Hamlets as a child, brought up your children in the area or worked as a childcare professional, then get in touch! Tell us where you roamed as a child and who made your tea, how you chose to bring up your children and why. What kind of childcare did you use, if any, and what do you think about childcare in the East End today? Holding the Baby will record oral history interviews, bring people of different generations together to discuss their experiences of childcare and create an exhibition and a website.
