Oral History Project

Steven McDaniel with GEMK

The ‘Who am I? Club’ was an initiative from GEMK in which a group of primary school children interviewed a cultural cross-section of Milton Keynes residents to find out about their heritage. I worked with this lively group to create a song and performance to present what they had learned. Each child took on one of the characters they had interviewed and created a verse about them. They performed the final piece to an enthusiastic audience in a whole school assembly, even dressing up like their interviewees!
