Wick Speaks! Was a project bringing together a range of Hackney Wick residents to create the Tour of the area through their eyes.

The People Speak collaborated with long-time local guide Hackney Tours to celebrate the diversity of the Wick and imagine the future of this unique and ever-changing place.

On Sun 27 Sep we brought Talkaoke – our live talk show – to the streets of Hackney Wick. Combining our socially distant live and online approach, we invited participants to join the conversation about the Wick, share their personal stories both past and present, and create the Wick Speaks! Tour of the area.

The Tour Launch, led by Hackney Tours and some of the local residents, took place on Sat 17 Oct 2020.
