More about Drift Tricks

Traditional skateboarding spaces can often feel exclusive and intimidating to those outside of the usual demographic. Both Skatepark Allyship (the audio piece you can listen to in the space) and Drift Tricks (skateable sculptures), created by artist Dani Abulhawa, aim to tackle these barriers and assert the power of inclusive play.

All genders welcome. These skate sessions are open for skateboard sessions only, no rollerblades, scooters or bikes.

You will be sent a safety disclaimer after booking and closer to the time of the workshop. Participation is understood to be at the participant’s own risk.
