'GRIP' EXHIBITION & PUBLICATION LAUNCH EVENT 

-

In July 2018, I spent time with Free Movement Skateboarding in Athens to assist them with their work helping refugees and the local community. The non-profit organisation use skateboarding as a means of empowerment for those of all ages; having equality, integration and wellbeing at the centre of their philosophy. 

Recreational activities such as this are essential to those in need. With 65,000 refugees currently leaving in Greece, Athens has become the first port-of-call for many who have travelled to mainland Europe from various war-torn and volatile countries. Economic hardship, as a result of financial crisis and austerity, has limited the amount of support from the state and has left gaps in work that needs addressing; including community projects. 

This publication highlights my experience and those who I had met and worked with.
