Speakers' Corner: Sisterhood

Speakers Corner collaborated with Art Director Neesha Champaneria and photographer Vivek Vadoliya to create a vivid set of photographs, part celebration of sisterhood and part show of colourful individuality. Sisterhood was shot around Bradford in 2020, highlighting the beauty and nature of the city and paying tribute to the city.

Sisterhood is part of Peaceophobia, a performance that explores car culture and islamophobia, co-created by Speakers Corner and Common Wealth and co-produced by Fuel

“The photoshoot was about coming together and being able to celebrate us as young women. It was a magical feeling to bring everyone together and just to be able to showcase who we are. It felt special that we were able to not only show people who Speakers Corner is but also showcase the beauty that is Bradford”

“This photoshoot highlighted everything that us Bradford girls encompass – power, unity and not letting anyone put us in a box. It felt so powerful dressed in bright colours, leading, revolutionising and unapologetically being ourselves. We are free spirited passionate Bradfodian women’’
