Humans of Hammersmith & Fulham 2020

Inspiring belonging, discussion and sharing

For the past year, UNITED’s team has met with hundreds of people who live work and play in our London borough.

Humans of Hammersmith & Fulham 2020 is an exhibition that presents these faces and words, bringing to you strangers who are neighbours in many ways. We hope that it will take away prejudice and exclusion, and inspire belonging, discussion and sharing.

 

Humans of Hammersmith & Fulham: Coronavirus Edition

We are delighted to continue our Humans of Hammersmith & Fulham project online in Spring and Summer 2020, respecting social distancing rules.

We’re doing this by publishing selfies of local people during the coronavirus pandemic to post on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, with stories they’ve chosen to share. We welcome anyone to take part, no matter if shielding, in a response role, or something in-between.

You can read more about this project, and how to take part in the blog at the link here.
