The founders of DoorDitch.co.uk have come up with a great idea for saving the history an urban area before gentrification removes all unwanted signs of former times. Doors have always hidden secrets, good and bad, from everyone not admitted over the threshold. Taking pictures of doors with or without graffiti, posting them on the website and asking for stories of lives behind these doors is a concept guaranteed to challenge writers. The limit of 100 doors and 100 words per story is the icing on the cake.
Perhaps DoorDitch could hold an exhibition in a local gallery, showing both the pictures and the stories. It is almost guaranteed that people living in this area don’t even notice the doors and the artwork. Familiarity does breed contempt.
