In the summer of 2007, two groups of teenagers aged 14 to 19 from the London Borough of Newham participated in a unique experience: assisted by video artists and historians, the teenagers uncovered sites related to historical racism and anti-racism in the West India Docks area of London and expressed their interpretation of this history and heritage creatively, using digital media and their imaginations. At the end of the 5-day workshops, each young participant had produced a personal short video, or ‘postcard’, informed by their workshop learning.
