Abstract

This article looks at a collaborative project by artist and film-maker Esther Johnson and film-maker and writer Debbie Ballin titled ‘Echoes of Protest’, which investigated the legacy of being involved in significant protest movements from a child’s perspective, in order to understand the role protest can play in the lives of children and explore its aftermath. The text draws upon oral testimony and photography to highlight a seldom-explored perspective of the 1984-1985 UK Miners’ Strike. The stories collected are from adults remembering what it was like to grow up during the strike. They articulate the experience with a maturity they may have been unable to express at the time. We explore the research methodology, findings, editing process and contributors’ reflections on their participation.
