Our Utopia

 We decided to create a backdrop and label it as OUR UTOPIA. We would then ask the customers who ,we said, were working class to write what their utopia would be or one dream on the white board and have a picture. This corresponds to the notion that manual labour is hard and that often an indivdual’s dream is a source of escapism.
