Join Impact Hub Birmingham members GirlDreamer for the screening of their exclusive documentary of their latest project “Boarders Without Borders”.
For the past six months, GirlDreamer have taken a group of young women aged 16-25 from different ethnic minority backgrounds with little or no long boarding experience and formed the UK’s first female, BAME* long boarding crew.
Longboarding originally started in Hawaii in the 1950s as a response to surfers wanting to continue their sport on land when the waves were too small to surf. It then became commerically available in 1958 and quickly became a popuar sport amongst teenagers and young people in Hawaii and California by the 1970’s.
Together with Sport England, GirlDreamer wanted to use sport as a tool for social change where they could build confidence, create inclusion and offer something new and niche to their community in Birmingham.
GirlDreamer decided to film the entire journey to create a legacy and inspire the next generation of girls to try new things, break barriers and feel confident to engage in sport.
You will get a chance to meet the boarders, ask questions, hear more about who GirlDreamer are and what they do and of course, enjoy the documentary!
*BAME – black, Asian, minority ethnic.
