TESTIMONIES

A session at Digital Shoreditch Festival 2012

Friday 25th May, 2012

1:00pm to 4:00pm (GMT)

TESTIMONIES is an art project led by the artist Lorenzo Belenguer that records Londoners’ personal stories and expectations about the 1948 Olympic Games and the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. It aims to empower conversation about this historic event, to compare with the 1948 Olympic Games and provide a legacy. The project will be broadcast around London in the format of video installations during the summer of 2012.Lorenzo and Emilie Giles, the Social Media Coordinator, are inviting everyone at Digital Shoreditch to see a preview of this and experience the project through an installation.

Social media is a huge part of the project as TESTIMONIES also collects stories over Twitter, Facebook and Vimeo. As part of the Identity day we are inviting people to give us their testimony through a video interview which will be uploaded to a bank of stories told by those who have participated in the project. Testimonies can be tweeted using the hashtag #ThisIsMyTestimony London and we also invite you to leave your stories on the TESTIMONIES London Facebook wall. More information can be found on www.LondonersTestimonies.com
