Invisible Britain will be a platform that will work with under represented individuals and communities to amplify their voices and help enable them to tell their stories via a diverse range of creative projects. The platform will also run workshops on the creative arts, a mentorship scheme and provide practical support and advice regarding creative opportunities, as well as offering paid work placements on film and television productions.
Our first project is Invisible Britain: Portraits, a photographic ethnography book that will feature stories and portraits of individuals across the UK who have been impacted by social issues such as austerity, Brexit, deindustrialisation, nationalism and cuts to public services. The book will capture and share 40 untold stories of hope and resistance from a diverse range of people, many of whom feel misrepresented in the media and out of sync with the government and politicians. Each story will be told in the individual’s own words and will be accompanied by a portrait from an accomplished documentary photographer.
