18 Ludwig: the story of a home, its history and our city

Step inside a time capsule where you can create and respond to stories produced by people from across Merseyside. The look and feel of this gallery is inspired by a house in the Anfield area of Liverpool that FACT's community media project tenantspin was given access to during 2009 -2010. The Victorian terrace had remained almost unchanged since the family moved in around 1907 and presented a unique opportunity to step back in time and literally re-trace the footsteps of the family who lived in the house for more than 100 years.

To bring to life the essence of the property, tenantspin and residents from the neighbourhood, with the help of community organisations such as ABCC and COBRA, and the Nevinson Family have created this space to help you share and record your histories through new and old digital technologies.

18 Ludwig is the embodiment of a Digital Story - a visual record of a particular family's life in Anfield told through their possessions and home. The space features stunning photo- graphic documentation of the house by photographer Stephen King and special artefacts and objects from the house donated by the Howarth family.

Digital Storytelling is the act of preserving knowledge and voices through creative technology. We are hosting special digital-story-telling afternoon workshops, with practical tips on how to start your journey, including the opportunity to digitise your own photographs and create a story to share with others in our archive. See the Exhibition Related Events section for more details.

We are also exploring The History of Liverpool in 100 objects through a unique photography project which offers you the opportunity to submit your treasured possessions to our archive and tell the story of Liverpool.

Alternatively, listen to tales from our North Liverpool Digital Stories Group or record your two-minute oral history via our hi-tech old telephone. Ask the gallery staff for a quick demo!
