‘What’s history in Nuneaton?’ Young people’s reflections on the town’s past, present, and future

In July 2012 six young people from the Art Alert group in Nuneaton – Eva Newtown, Rosie Hogan, Joseph Lole, Joseph Hincks, Martha Lole and George Lole – took part in a workshop series exploring community history and memory of the town’s industrial heritage, its transmission across generations and its impact on the young people’s perspective on a contemporary life in the small deindustrialised town. The workshop was organised as part of the collaboration between Warwick University and the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum and co-funded by the University of Warwick and the MYPLACE project.
