How They See Us

‘How They See use’ is a project which investigates how people from different backgrounds navigate their lives.

The project explores how people believe society sees them as an individual, and what labels and stereotypes have been placed upon them based on how they look, their race, their ethnicity of where they are “from”.

We have interviewed five amazing individuals from different cultural backgrounds, who shared their experiences of what it is like being a person of colour in NI and what their experiences have been like growing up here.

We talked about the struggles of navigating identity, representation, grief, belonging, race, discrimination and self-love & acceptance.

For this online event, we will have a panel discussion with a few of the people that took part in the project.
