Rubaiyath Reza, president of the 2018/19 chapter of Amnesty International UAE and collaborator-participant in let’s take a walk (2016) asks, “How do non zero one ensure that you continue to be inclusive and diverse in your castings and the work that you produce?”
In this episode we look at collaborating with people who are different to us, and how those differences have made our work better. We also examine some of the barriers that our type of interactive, tech-heavy work introduces for people, ways in which we’ve approached that in the past, and the distance we still have to go. Does being an artist mean you need to hear the sound of your own voice? How can you use that position to listen, rather than talk?
As non zero one turns 10, we asked eight people who have been part of our journey to pose us a question. We reflect on lessons we’ve learned from collaborators, mentors, and unexpected places, focusing on a different question in each 20-minute episode. Music by James Bulley.
