OUR Harlow is 75 project has taken a number of tangents over the past year.
Here we explore how schools celebrate their global villages.

TO mark the town’s 75thanniversary, Harlow Council and Your Harlow have launched a project which records the diverse history, heritage, and culture of the people and groups which are part of modern-day Harlow.
The Harlow at 75 project is made up of audio-visual recordings of conversations with both individuals and groups that explores their lives abroad before resettling in Harlow. The project reflects that we are a local but global new town and explores themes such as the definition of “Home”.
There has never been a more important time to take every opportunity to bring communities back together, to show that a rich diverse history and heritage is something that can bring us together and be celebrated.
