Tagging Communities

  • 1 May 2015 - 31 December 2015


Tagging Communities is a new heritage community project about 6 neighbourhoods across Liverpool focusing on the last 150 years. The project will create a blog and an app which can be used by anyone living or visiting Liverpool presenting an alternative history told by the community residents. 

On 29 January, we will launch the final iteration of our year long Tagging Communities digital heritage project, with a free app and website!

The app offers 6 trails across the city full of content produced by our local groups, working with historians and digital artists, through a series of workshops and research trips. Using a combination of personal stories, soundscapes and animation, along with archive images, maps and film, the website and app aim to reanimate our local heritage.


Join our Digital History Older People's group, Veterans in Practice and Blind Veteran UK members and the pupils from Gilmour Infant School to explore Anfield, Everton, Vauxhall, Kirkdale, Garston and Speke, and leave your own stories about these rich areas of history on the website's comments page.
