Arcade Tales aims to capture the unrecorded histories of the UK amusement arcade and to share these stories through comic books. It is a research project led by Dr Alan Meades from the School of Media, Art and Design.
The project aims to highlight the cultural importance that amusement arcades had upon youth culture throughout the 1960s to the present day, and to capture stories, histories and arcade tales before they are lost forever.
Dr Alan Meades was recently invited to speak about his research at Stanford University. He presented the arcade culture research project, Arcade Tales, which uses comic books as a way of communicating and capturing oral histories from British arcades, and also a selection of rare and previously unseen arcade photographs from Canterbury Christ Church University’s George Wilson Archive.
Alan is keen to hear from anyone with stories that might relate to his project.
You can read the comic book on his website.
This project is closely related to Alan's other work on Arcades Culture and Arcade Heritage.
You can contact Alan with your stories at email@example.com
