Pleased to announce that I will become a Wikipedian in Residence for the 2021-22 academic year, with support from the UAL Knowledge Exchange Secondment Scheme. I will be expanding the Decolonising Wikipedia Network across UAL, and inviting students, staff and people from local communities to edit Wikipedia pages related to London’s colonial her/histories. There is still much more to know and write about the 1911 Festival of Empire in Crystal Palace, so this will serve as a starting point, before looking at similar events that took place in other parts of London. I’ll post more updates here and on the new Project Phase 2 page as plans unfold!
A video recording of the 19 May Project Roundtable event can now be seen on YouTube. Here’s the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HI1GVg6UPjY
Hi, I’m Lucy Panesar, artist and academic managing progression and attainment projects at UAL London College of Communication. I’ve created this blog to document the 1911 Festival of Empire Knowledge Exchange Project that I’m leading, and which is hosted by LCC in association with local community organisations in Crystal Palace. The project started in March and has completed its first phase. The About section will tell you more about the project aims and the Phase 1 section will tell you about the activities to date. I will add more posts with project updates and guest contributions. If you’d like to contribute, know more or be involved, please email me: email@example.com
