Landecker Fellow Mamobo Ogoro’s project titled This is “Them” aims to see through the lens of people of different communities in Ireland. In the summer of 2022, the first online content of the project has started rolling out.
“The series aims to bring in everyday community members (specifics based on age, gender, ethnicity, religion etc. depend on the episode) to take part in a series of recorded tasks which ultimately allow them to critically engage in issues pertaining to their community,” the Gorm Media website explains.
To make the project happen, the team has worked with members of the Autistic Community, Muslim Community, Transgender Community, Down Syndrome Community and Black Community and more.
To watch the first This is “Them” videos, visit Gorm Media’s YouTube channel.
