DIVERSITY: Stories of a Hackney Generation

 

“Hackney is a wonderful place to grow old. I’ve grown old here and I’m still growing old. I’m British now, I’m a Hackney girl… and here is home.” Anita Ceesay

 

In London they seem to think that once you’re old, that’s it - you’re finished, they push you to the back. Whereas in Nigeria, as in most African countries, as you get older you are respected more.” Gubsie Agolia-Aspinall

 

Over the past 6 months, Hackney elders have been sharing their stories – about love, work, change, prejudice, loneliness, pride and resilience.

 

We have spoken to people from many of Hackney’s diverse communities including disabled people, LGBTQ+, Vietnamese, Senegalese, Nigerian, British, American and Chinese.

 

These previously untold stories are being documented through two short films and a commemorative booklet and will be launched at a special Connect Hackney event on 31st October 2019 in Frampton Park.

 

The event will include a hot lunch on arrival, a Q&A about ageing, presentations, afternoon tea and cake and entertainment.

 

Date: Thursday 31st October 2019

Time: 12pm – 5pm

Venue: Frampton Park Baptist Church Community Rooms, Frampton Park Road, London, E9 7PQ
