THREAD/1. Our study-trip to Canada in May was equally insightful as it was pleasurable for the team to be involved in. Seeing the culmination of the documentary @gyme7 & the @BBCNewsbeat team put together is a great conclusion to this trip. pic.twitter.com/Al7TnKY80U— Volteface (@VoltefaceHub) July 29, 2019
