The 'Other Checkbox' is a project that explores London's 'other ethnic' identities, especially within the equality and diversity monitoring forms and the national statistics. The idea of the project was born from our continuous conversation and debates on identity and not feeling represented or belonging. It is a project that is rooted in our own lived experience as immigrants and members of the 'Other' ethnic groups ourselves.
We ran a survey consisting of 14 questions where we asked the general public about their experiences filling in the equality and diversity monitoring forms used for the national statistics.
Our findings wereon an impact report where the voices of the 'other' ethnic underrepresented groups are present, looking at how we can together find an alternative solution for change.
