Case Studies

A creative digital adventure that brings to life the history of Leytonstone High Road, through the eyes of young local residents. Participants could 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.

Come and experience the histories, old and new, that lie in the buildings, streets and people of Leytonstone.

Proud to be a part of Leytonstone Arts Trail on the 6th of July 2019 and part of Leytonstone Loves Film which is produced by the Barbican in partnership with local residents and organisations and commissioned by London Borough of Culture.

The app was available to experience between June 2019 - June 2020.

Access report

Be part of the Imagination Museum consortium

Our aim is to bring artists and heritage organisations together, helping them to collaborate more effectively

Whether you’re: 

  • an artist interested in finding out more about opportunities to work creatively with dance in museums, 
  • a museum, heritage site, gallery or archive interested in interpreting your collection through dance,
  • a producer
  • researcher
  • teacher
  • student 
  • or any other arts or heritage practitioner or organisation

please complete the form on the right to join the Imagination Museum consortium. This is an informal group and it is free to participate. While we're not currently funded, we share information with the Consortium list much less regularly than we post on social media, so you may also want to follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram via the links at the bottom of the page.

    • Join the conversation - sign up to hear what others have to say, or submit an event listing or opportunity, a blog post about your working process, a case study or resources you are happy to share. These will be published online and circulated amongst consortium members. We have templates to help you share this information with us, so make a note in your message if you would like guidance on how to format your case study for example.
    • Receive notifications about current news and opportunities via our consortium mailing list - the form on the right signs you up to our consortium list, but please also join our general mailing list via our Homepage if you wish
    • Find out about our consortium meetings - opportunities to learn about best practice and meet like-minded practitioners from the arts and heritage sectors

    Any content you submit will be reviewed to ensure it is in keeping with the aims of the Imagination Museum (see About Us) and we may make small changes to make it compatible with the format of the website, but we will always check with you before publishing an edited version.
