POST PANDEMIC PARTICIPATION
19th July 2021
Britons had named this day 'FREEDOM DAY'. As this day drew near It sparked the idea for creating Part Two: Post Pandemic Participation. This was to be the perfect closure to Part One: Pandemic Pullovers, which recorded the emotions during the first lockdown. Six weeks post freedom day and government polls show a staggering 80% of brits feel life has not yet returned to 'normal'.

The bodies act as mediators that unite us together giving opportunity to voice our diverse opinions negotiating how we feel about socialising again.
