Guardian Weekend // Streets Project // Canton Community Sing


The Streets Project was an exciting commission I had from the Guardian Weekend. They were interested in documenting 4 streets across the U.K. during the Covid- 19 lockdown, to see how the neighbours and communities were coming together and what novel ways they’d devised to create a sense of togetherness. After a bit of digging around on social media, I came across the Canton Community Sing, which started a few streets away from my house in Cardiff. The residents were delighted to be photographed and interviewed for the piece, it was a really great atmosphere and I’m looking forward to the celebratory street party when it’s possible!
