Finding your place in the hustle and bustle of a city the size of London can be a challenge. Focussing on the WhatsApp skateboarding group ‘Siblings’, it tells the story of how LQGTQIA+, people of colour, womxn, trans and non-binary people have created an inclusive safe space. It explores how social media groups and digital communication platforms bridge the gaps between people and act as a stepping stone to real life interactions and relationships.
This project was commissioned by Greater London Authority in collaboration with the pop-up sound installation 'The Conversation Booth". My visuals aimed to interpret the research projects sonic archive.
