Belonging in Britain

‘Belonging in Britain’ is a storytelling project run by Encompass – the Daniel Braden Reconciliation Trust, a charity working in the UK and internationally to promote peace and understanding in communities.

Using analogue film photography, and audio interviews, the project explores symbols, institutions and traditions that are celebrated as distinctly ‘British’. The project shows that behind these great British institutions are individuals from a variety of ethnic, social and economic backgrounds. They represent the many different faces of Britain, but many do not embody the traditional concept of ‘Britishness’.

This project was premiered at the Guardian and can be accessed and explored online through this website: https://belonginginbritain.com
