From Docks to desktops. The history of Work

Deptford High Street writes.. 
"From Docks to Desktops is London Bubble’s latest oral history project that will involve local people, including children and elders in exploring the history of Work in Bermondsey, Rotherhithe and Deptford. It will look at how the area has changed since the closure of the Surrey Commercial Docks and related industries. London Bubble itself works out of a former sacking warehouse near the river, and the building retains some of its original features, including a small crane and loading doors. The project will also look more widely at how changes in employment have affected community life, friendships and health
London Bubble are asking for volunteers to help them develop the project. The aim is to collect personal testimonies from older people and members of south-east London’s diverse international communities, talking about their working life and their reflections on how south London has changed in that time. These oral histories will then be developed into a play performed by an inter-generational community cast in the summer of 2013 to audiences in the area...."
