Skate Park 360 Video
An Appeal To The Wider Community
Skate parks and skateboarding – many of us grew up with a skateboard
Some of us can remember it’s heyday of the 1970’s
For so many others it’s been a fun and easily accessible Sport
It has kept us off the streets and in this case giving us a constructive pastime.
What’s happened here is quite incredible.
From the outside it looks like a crumbling industrial building.
But open the doors and it’s full of life!
An indoor skate paradise.
Air Ramps, Half Pipe and even a Bowl.
All made by themselves.
18 Years In The Making
Over the past 17 and a half years the small collective of young people at The Trick Factory in Bridport have really enjoyed a skatepark they have built on their own.
They have not only built it but also maintained it taking on the responsibility of renting a building and sourcing all the timber.
Building an incredible indoor Skatepark where they can meet and practise a great sport and socialise.
I saw no drink or drug use and they were so incredibly polite and cooperative – a social utopia – success!
Some of these young men learnt self motivation, picked up hammers and saws to bend and mould the ramps and internal supports and here they have learnt a trade and have gone on to be builders, carpenters and tradesmen.
A Social Success Coming To An End….?
It’s quite sad that due to development and a building that needs rebuilding over the last 4 years the landowners have had to say “Please, you really need to find somewhere else”
The landowners have been Guardians when no one else would give them a chance
but safety is an important issue and a building that is crumbling must be redeveloped.
Who Wants 18 Years Of Rent?
Still these young people are not lacking initiative and have taken up a campaign and an appeal to find a new site for their skate park.
After doing some digging around and using my knowledge of Google we have made some connections.
They have a framework for a fundraising and construction project but there is just one thing missing – your inclusion.
Everybody knows something that can help. Feel free to jump in!
I also work with Google VR – developing Virtual Reality with 360 Video.
You may even put your smartphone inside a piece of Google Cardboard and be virtually there.
