Our brilliant Tottenham UpLIFTers are always up for new adventures so when the BBC VR Hub asked if we knew any students who’d be interested in helping them launch their brand new VR experience, we knew exactly who to ask. Created by the BBC VR Hub with the development studio Anagram, Make Noise uses original archive material from the suffragettes to retell the dramatic story of how a few women started one of the most important movements in history and puts its user at the centre of it all by encouraging them to use the power of voice to smash through the barriers the suffragettes faced during their fight to win the vote for women.

The UpLIFTers will be working on their own digital experience in 2019 in a new collaboration with the Tottenham-based digital artist, director and curator, Imwen Eke. The project will explore the socio-cultural dimensions of Tottenham through technology and play and will be shared with the public in late spring, watch this space!
