Untouchable archive?Growing up in the ?90s, in a violent home on an East Midlands council estate, wasn't what I would have chosen for an upbringing. But who gets to choose?' Untouchable is a piece about hope, endurance and survival. It's about finding the courage to speak out. It's about the often hidden realities of everyday life that happen behind closed doors. Whilst tender and courageous, this piece has guts and grit offering an insight into a complex multi-racial family living in a world of abuse. Untouchable looks hopefully at recovery for a family in constant negotiation with the repercussions of a violent history. It's been 11 years since that Man has been out of our lives, but the scars are with us still. Will we ever recover as a family? Growing up in the '90s, in a violent home on an East Midlands council estate, wasn't what I would have chosen for an upbringing. After calling the police daily, repeatedly hitch-hiking to safety with my kid brothers and surviving my childhood, I consider the different kinds of love necessary for an often callous family dynamic. Untouchable is a piece about hope, endurance and survival. It's about finding the courage to speak out. It's about hidden realities of everyday life that happen behind closed doors. It's about real people, a family, and invisible scars that haven't healed. It's about our media, our government, our value systems, and where our society is failing its children. Untouchable pays homage to a violent past, in a difficult present. Whilst tender and courageous, this piece has guts and grit offering an insight into a complex multi-racial family living in a world of abuse. It breaks the silence of 11 years of violent acts and words, and speaks of the often unspoken reality of statistically common households across the country. Untouchable looks hopefully at recovery for a family in constant negotiation with the repercussions of a violent history.
