Touching 1989 - Reflections and Recollections

Project in Partnership with Czech Centre London


30 years ago, the events of 1989 redrew the political map of Europe, affecting the lives of millions.

Looking at those historical moments and their aftermath from today’s perspective what role did the year 1989 play in your life? Do you have an experience or a memory of 1989? Maybe you immigrated to the UK, maybe you have family memories, maybe you have another story to tell. WHATEVER IT IS, WE WANT TO HEAR IT!

By sharing the personal stories of people who experienced the changes we now tend to take for granted, the Touching 1989 project aims to create a collective memory of 1989 to improve the understanding of Europe today and to learn more about each other.

We’re looking for people from all backgrounds and of all ages with personal links to 1989 events and  currently living in the UK to participate in this new video project. 

To take part in TOUCHING 1989 record a video (no longer than two minutes) of yourself responding to one of the following questions and send it in: 

What is your personal experience of the events of 1989?

How did the 1989 events affect your life?

What does the year 1989 mean to you?
