A creative digital adventure that brings to life the history of Leytonstone High Road, through the eyes of young local residents. Get to know this corner of the city better through a walking AR app that includes dance, music and stories created and told by the people that live here.
The app was created by students from Leytonstone’s very own Connaught School for Girls in collaboration with digital dance company Pell Ensemble and computing educator U Can Too. Students co-created the performance, stories and music, and developed the app using Augmented Reality app Blippar; creating a way to see the high street in a new light.

Teaching the hard skills of coding through a creative brief.
A programme started in 2016, led by The Bridge at Waterloo supported by the Wolcot Foundation, to create a pathway to digital employment for people 18-30 in Lambeth Council. Digital futures works to give people employability and coding skills over a 4 week period. The digital education team led by Su Adams of U Can Too teamed up with dance choreographer Rebecca Evans of Pell Ensemble to bring a creative twist to the project. Students in the 2016 cohort created a digital performance for Strive Festival at Southbank Centre and in 2017 an evening performance was created for The Vaults.
