ABOUT THE display

We lit up Old Street roundabout in East London with new artworks created by young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds.

The display was part of our Sense of Belonging project, opening up conversations about home and migration in the London Borough of Hackney. Autograph teamed with youth media organisation Mouth That Roars to provide workshops, training and creative opportunities for young people from refugee and migrant backgrounds. They worked with artists and filmmakers for inspiration about how to document and tell stories, capture powerful conversations and raise awareness of important social issues in our local area.

The group created new artworks reflecting on identity and belonging in the borough, which were broadcast six metres high on the Old Street Digital Canvas in the heart of Shoreditch, London.
