Brixton based (not for profit) company Embrace Cooperation Ltd is running a year community project in Lambeth. The project started in November 2011 and is focusing on the historical and natural heritage of Ruskin Park in Lambeth. This will include heritage of English historical figure, John Ruskin the famous artist, writer and social campaigner who the park was initially named after.

As part of this project Embrace hopes to interview local people about their memories of Ruskin Park. The oral history interviews aim to preserve memories of this amazing park for future generations. Project volunteers will interview and video record the people wishing to take part.

It is hoped that in this new project in Lambeth the oral history interviews will foster interest in the park and lead to long-term participation in its conservation as well as creating interaction between the generations. The interviews will take place when convenient for you and can either be done at Embrace Cooperation Ltd office in Brixton or at a location of your choice (i.e. a public place like a quiet café, your home/ residence).

For more information about “Lost Stories of Ruskin Park” project, future Embrace events, tailor made activities and/or volunteering on Embrace projects.
