Students Jiaqi Li and Bowen use interactive storytelling to get people thinking differently about youth homelessness

Originally from China, Jiaqi and Bowen are both 23. For their MA they have made an online interactive documentary using illustration, animation, audio and text to share stories about homeless people. Bowen says: “Our Dice Life of Homeless demo project provides the audience with a whole new perspective on how to understand what it is to be young and homeless.”

Jiaqi adds: “I rarely see young people homeless in China. At first in the UK I thought ‘these are young people, so they should try to find a job to support themselves rather than begging on the street.’ This made me want to know more about this group of young people. Our story concept is a very different now. I see it’s how the dice rolls. Being homeless is only one of many identities of people who are or have been homeless.”
