Belonging: Tiger Bay Boxing Club presents an intimate portrait of group of young people in the Butetown area of Cardiff. How does a boxing club in a deprived neighbourhood manage to navigate the challenges of limited resources while pursuing a big vision to support young people to thrive?
Belonging highlights the experiences of young people during the emergency conditions posed by the threat of the Covid-19 pandemic. We hear how the difficult times of the pandemic stimulated agency within this community, creating solidarity, and the determination to safeguard and promote wellbeing. For the young people, the boxing club is more than just a place for physical activities; it’s a space for building relationships, resilience, confidence, respect, personal growth, and a sense of belonging.
