People, Place and Sport

People, Place and Sport is a celebration of local communities and sport in the West Midlands. 

In the run up to next years Commonwealth Games, Boora is photographing the sporting hubs tucked away in our communities where grassroots sport takes place on a weekly basis.

This exploration of our relationship to space and physical activity has taken on a new layer of meaning since the pandemic. 

The way we use spaces has become multi-faceted, and physical activity is just as important for our mental wellbeing as our physical.

The conversations Boora is having with people in the community about what sport means to them is important in the development of the project and the shape it will take in next years exhibition.

The conversations and photographs Boora is making, will be part of an outdoor exhibition during the B2022 Commonwealth Games Cultural Festival. 

There will be a cobination of audio and images of portraits and landscapes.

More information on when and where the exhibitions will take place will be published in 2022. 

People, Place and Sport was made possible through funding and support from Arts Council England, Multistory, GRAIN Projects and B2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games Cultural Festival team.
