Conversations around… Exclusion
Published on 9 Mar 2022
In 2020 we launched our first feature documentary Excluded inspired by direct-action activism on exclusion by a group of affected young people from the summer of 2018. In this documentary we wanted to platform the diverse voices of young people from across the UK with lived and learned experience of exclusion and to create a space for the issues that the people most often left out of the conversation on exclusion wanted to centre. The film ended up only featuring those young people – talking about their experiences and ideas around exclusion.
We heard that the film had kickstarted conversations and discussions, and wanted to see if we could replicate this. In 2021 generously supported by the law firm Allen & Overy, we were able to do just that. This film, made with young people working with the organisation Just for Kids Law was inspired by Gogglebox, using the film to act as a conversational starter, inspiration or a prompt to raise issues and discussions.
These were those conversations.
EachOther is a UK-focused charity that uses independent journalism, storytelling and filmmaking to put the human into human rights. The digital content we produce is grounded in the lived experience of ordinary people affected by human rights issues. We involve them in the process of developing their stories, rather than talking for or over them. Theirs are the voices we platform and amplify to our lay audience of over a million viewers each year. In this way, we hope to grow public support for human rights here in the UK.
