Manifesta’s latest initiative In My Footsteps is an interaction between people and place, combining local history and Heritage with communal culture and personal identity. First piloted in London’s East End – Whitechapel, Limehouse and Poplar – it has engaged local residents, young and old, in living-heritage activities: unearthing, highlighting and celebrating fresh ‘takes’ on particular places that matter to them. Working with museums, local historians, community groups, and creative facilitators, participants from a variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds have become, in effect, ‘neighbourhood-curators'. They created their own trails - mini walking tours, guiding us through fascinating journeys of discovery, imaginatively weaving together personal stories and reminiscences with broader social history. The trails are now encapsulated on a free mobile App, so that others can explore them, virtually as well as for real.
