A Hackney special

Hackney has always been a borough of immense diversity and extremes. One part is rich. One part is poor. There are areas known for violence, and there are areas where some of London’s most expensive homes can be bought. There’s the vibrant nightlife of Shoreditch and the cultural melting pot of Brick Lane.
But one thing that ties Hackney together is its creativity.
Exposure spent time with lots of young people from this great borough to find out what makes them tick. Should drugs be legalised? Are we addicted to our phones? Why do we still label women as sluts? Should kids with ADHD be medicated? Contained within these pages are some of the most thought provoking pieces from an excellent bunch of east London’s finest youngsters.
