The Living Heritage project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, was a collaboration between Camden Council, Central Saint Martins (CSM), the British Museum and the Hunterian Museum. Students worked with Year 12, A Level Photography classes from Camden's La Swap schools (Parliament Hill, William Ellis, La Sainte Union) and Year 10 classes from South Camden Community School in a creative exploration of the architectural heritage of Camden. The outcome of the collaboration was an exhibition at the British Museum and at the Innovation Centre of CSM. CSM students gained valuable experience of working with school groups and Museums. The school pupils were given insight into the creative process, learnt about aspects of Camden's heritage and gained experience of working with design students.
The outcomes were very successful – school pupils made a range of models exploring body parts and anatomical systems as metaphors for the city, and a series of photographs of the British Museum and environs taken as if through the view point of various animals and objects including a mouse, a rhino, a fly and a leaf.
