Underpinned by a desire to celebrate the diverse melting pot of multiculturalism that makes up Shoreditch, we have led a community-focused arts project that seeks to represent the widest visual depiction of the local community. Eager to highlight the real lives of Shoreditch residents and workers, ‘Shoreditch Lives’ is an honest representation of the incredibly unique range of people that fill the streets. We invited volunteers from a range of backgrounds and walks of life to be scanned and 3D printed, along with an object of their choice that best represents their character, personality or profession. The packaging is a tongue-in-cheek nod to the typical stereotypes levelled at those going about their day to day lives in Shoreditch. The miniature figurines capture, quite literally, a moment in these residents’ lives and showcase the wonderful characters that comprise this area.
