Access for London project
The Access for London project shows the history of accessibility on London’s transport network. As part of it, Treloar’s students have been working alongside film company 104 projects, Ark media, London Transport, London Metropolitan Archives and the London Transport Museum to produce a documentary film, nine Oral Histories, and Heritage boards which will be on permanent display at Battersea Power Station underground station and the website where the work is being shown and launched from.
Students met archivist, Tom Furber from London Metropolitan Archive who showed them how to use the historic archives. As part of the research element for this project students have been, looking for old documents such as photos, videos and maps within the archive, researching how the accessibility of transport in London has evolved.
The students have researched the history of disability and transport and have partnered with TFL to produce posters.
This project is the culmination of a lot of hard work, researching through the archives to find relevant information, writing questions pre interviews to ensure the correct film footage is captured; there was a lot of filming, editing, designing. The list goes on, but the results are fantastic – the students are very proud of their work. To learn more about the project and watch their documentary film, visit the Access for London website.
