Polaris is a one-of-a-kind project featuring diverse communities of non-traditional skateboarders across the country who are paving the way to inclusion while doing what they love: skateboarding.
Centered around community events from East to West, the Polaris project connects groups and their leaders—who have become Polaris of their own—into a large intersecting net of women, Indigenous, people of colour, queer, and trans skateboarders taking over the streets; pushing the norms of our industry and society.
Produced by @Lapir0, in collaboration with @b3ttern3verand @kida.malc Polaris aims to be what it preaches: communal. Several filmers and photographers have contributed their visions throughout this exhibition, video, and zine. Including @imagemavenand @kayleebeyhay from 100% Skate Club.
Push To Heal is a short film made in association with Hull Services and the ChildTrauma Academy. It endeavors to verbally articulate and visually demonstrate the connections between skateboarding and neuroscience, and highlights skateboarding as an activity that can heal the human brain from past trauma. This film also provides a snapshot of how and why skateboarding should be viewed as a viable option as part of treatment for high needs children.
