We’re super stoked to be partnering with Pushing Boarders for a day championing skateboarding in all its forms with a unique line-up of pro-skaters, community groups, NGOs, policy-makers and academics presenting a series of talks and Q&As exploring the social impact of skateboarding worldwide
Here’s what you can expect on the day:
Tunnel 2 | Cinema Space
Kick back in our Cinema and hear from the Skateboarding insiders:
14:00 - 15:30
Q&A: Globally Stoked: The Skate Charity Movement
From Peru to Palestine, Afghanistan to Athens, skate charities are harnessing the power of skateboarding to empower marginalised communities in new and innovative ways. Ten years ago, the concept of a ‘skate charity’ didn’t even exist. Today, this skater-led movement is thriving, but what’s next?
Panel: Oliver Percovich [Skateistan], Tobias Egelkamp [Skate Aid], Arne Hilerns [Make Life Skate Life], Charlie Davis [SkatePal]
Chair: Will Ascott & Ruby Mateja [Free Movement Skateboarding]
16:00 - 17:30
Q&A: Skateboarding is Not a Crime: How to Build a Skate Friendly City
Skaters and the city have historically been at loggerheads over the defensive architecture and restrictions placed on public spaces, but things are changing. Skateboarders worldwide are beginning to win hard fought battles to protect iconic spots and construct the inclusive cities they desire. The question is: what do skaters want and need from the built environment
Panel: Gustav Svanborg-Eden [Skate Malmo], Chris Lawton [Skate Nottingham], Benny Fairfax [Pro Skater], Daphne Greca [Brixton's Baddest Skateshop]
Chair: Ocean Howell & Paul Richards [LLSB]
