We Don't Bite was a research and design project which explores early stage thinking towards how the Pervasive Media Studio can become a more equitable space for young people. The project was carried out by Joe Hill and Sumaya Hassan-Murphy, independently of the diversity and inclusion research and thinking already taking place within the studio.
The project ran during the first few months of 2022, and involved a mixture of conversations and workshops with young people and organisations.
