Bounce is delighted to share the digital version of our intergenerational project Sugar & Spice.
Sugar and Spice celebrates Tooting High Street from the end of WW2 to the current day. The project began as an idea in a lockdown project with The National Archives education team. Using a photo of Tooting in their collection for inspiration, people connected digitally sharing memories of Tooting and the places they were missing.
As we looked forward to reconnecting in person, we decided to mark the moment by exploring how the community emerged after another world event.
Working with Meet & Make Spaces, Tooting, over the last year, residents ranging from 5-80 years old have been researching the changing face of the High Street, sharing memories, recording stories and finding creative ways to curate their heritage.
