Challenging the mis-representation of Jaywick Sands


A walk through Jaywick' aims to challenge the national misrepresentation of Jaywick sands, what is commonly known as 'the most deprived area of the UK'. Jaywick sands is often painted as a troubled refuge, a place the government has seemingly given up on.

However these perspectives are painted through certain agendas, ones that may not line up with the residents of Jaywick sands. 'A walk through Jaywick' provides an incite into the residents opinions and attempts to provide an honest democratic view of what we know as 'the most deprived area of the UK'.
