The triggering of Article 50 in March 2017 marked the formal start of the Brexit process. After a referendum characterised by polarisation, fear and lack of information on both sides, it seemed a good time to stop and listen.

In response to this, my collaborator Ali Avery and I travelled the UK in leaps of 50 miles, knocking on every number 50 door we saw, and speaking to people we met on the way. We wanted to go beyond the headlines to find out what felt important to people going forwards, to identify shared hopes and values and to reflect on the way personal biographies intersect with wider political shifts.
