WHERE WE BELONG: THE CELEBRATION OF WOMEN SKATEBOARDERS IN NYC
The purpose of this project was to bring awareness to the females of skateboarding. These women are at all different levels of skateboarding, including myself. These women don’t judge nor do they put you down. These women encourage you to keep trying.
Finding it difficult to find a positive group of people to associate myself with, I feel like the women who skate here in NYC have made me feel otherwise. With all of my interests such as photography, fly fishing and activism, none of the cultures compare to the culture of female skateboarding.
Objectives for this Project:
Bring more women together.
Introduce more women into the art industry.
Inspire more women to skateboard and do art.
Show the struggles of women in the skateboarding culture.
Provide insight on the backgrounds of the women who skateboard.
