Building 57 is a series attempting to give power to the youth of military communities in the UK. Power is something that most of the youths I’ve worked with feel they don’t have. Often a military child will move as frequently as six months to two years. This irregularity can be a massive detriment to things such as education. Often a child with special requirements within a school will have to wait a long time to receive the help they need. Their whole life is governed by the army and their association with home is focused on their family members and immediate community rather than physical walls. Exploring the greater picture of living within military life I realised the strong voice the youths from army communities have.
