Collection name: Contemplating Community. Subjects: Oral History; Documentary & News: A collection of recordings produced by the general public in collaboration with Archivate Collective, as part of the 2014 InTransit Festival, in the Royal Borough of Kensington Chelsea. Participants responded to a mixture of random questions, and provocations, or were left to talk about whatever came to mind. The result is a rich collection of snippets of peoples thinking, that vary in content and emotional tone. Press release: "As a part of the ten day InTRANSIT festival, hosted by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Contemplating Community is an interactive installation that responds to the theme of ‘dwelling in unity’ and records the voices, thoughts, stories, and ideas of the people who enter it. A public space where the community can encounter itself."; items: 342 Digital Audio Files
