This blog was created in April 2012 as a practical outcome for a media related course at University which deals with and reflects the London riots from August 2011. Time passed since that happened and the visible traces of the riots are removed from the streets. We made a short documentary about this subject and went back to some places in London where the riots took place. With the question “Why were there so many young people joined the riots?”, we met and interviewed amongst others one shy but very interesting young guy who wrote a poem when the riots happened and published it on YouTube. Our aim with the documentary is to uncover the invisible traces of the London riots 2011.
This blog works as a platform to discuss and share ideas about this subject and of the lectures at Uni. The two other blogs our course mates created are linked on the sidebar!
