As part of our digital strategy, we have commissioned design firm Bold Creative to create a free, multi-platform web app that promotes and enables broad user access and interactive engagement with aspects of the TMC Collection.

 

Conceptualised around the notion of the developing tray used in a photographic darkroom, the TMC App will allow users to select from a pool of images arranged by keywords on a wheel, before developing their chosen photograph(s) and finding out more information, in text and audio. Photographs can then be saved to a personal photo wall, and revisited at a later stage.

 

The second stage of the App is primarily aimed towards educators pursuing active learning with KS3-5 students in formal and informal settings. Our TMC Learning Environment and Teaching Zone is a web-based resource that enables access and cross-curricular engagement with culturally diverse photographic heritage material for group activities across the subject areas of art and design, history, geography and citizenship.

 

The TMC Learning Environment offers three distinct activities, which were developed as part of action research during a series of workshops delivered here at Rivington Place in 2014. These are: Interview The Image, Analyse The Image – interactive task-based activities to encourage visual literacy and the development of research skills – and the exploratory Journey of the Image. Students are able to compete activities on- as well as off-screen, and print or save their work to a teachers’ dossier folder. Further tools include a glossary, a history of photography timeline, and a series of downloadable worksheets.

 

 

ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHS

 

The photographs in the Web App represent a diverse range of people, from as-yet unidentified individuals living and working in Britain to performers, politicians, dignitaries, servicemen and women, royalty, missionaries and known personalities

 

Their collective presence bears direct witness to the nation’s colonial and imperial history, and the expansion of the British Empire during the nineteenth and early twentieth century.

 

These portraits reveal an important, complex black presence in Britain before the SS Empire Windrush landed in 1948 with nearly 500 Caribbean migrants, which is often cited as the key moment in the emergence of a multicultural British society. Many of these photographs were produced in commercial studios during the second half of the nineteenth century, and lay buried deep within the archives for decades – unseen for more than 125 years.

 

Part of The Missing Chapter programme, supported by Heritage Lottery Fund. Developed in association with the Hulton Archive, a division of Getty Images.

 

 

FOR TEACHERS AND EDUCATORS

 

  • The Web App has been designed with a comprehensive guide for learning objectives, curriculum links and contextual information.
  • Teachers and tutors can use the resource in formal and informal learning environments.
  • This resource will deepen student’s engagement, knowledge and understanding of a ‘missing chapter’ in the visual heritage of Britain.

 

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

 

The Missing Chapter Web App will:

  • Encourage students to critically engage with a unique collection of historical photographs, exploring how they present different, under-explored perspectives on British cultural history.

  • Explore the role of archives and collections brought to public attention through The Missing Chapter research.
  • Make new research accessible for a wide range of audiences from learning, recreational and academic contexts, through an interactive, creative online environment in which to engage with the work.
