Our England

Honest conversations about home, identity, and life with Europeans who, for whatever reason and circumstance, have made England their home. I don’t believe in censoring or altering any of these stories. We all have our opinions and in a democratic manner we all have the right to express them and stand by them. I am not trying to change anyone’s mind, it’s merely a reflection of how wonderfully diverse is our society. Immigration, politics, economical implications…forget all that. This is simple about the people. 

This project has been supported and partially funded by Leeds Inspired and Leeds City Council. It has been exhibited at Bowery Arts (Leeds) and Leeds Kirkgate Market throughout 2020. If you would like it to be exhibited in your venue, please get in touch.
