JAMAIKA aims to act as an intimate visual memory of Bairro da Jamaica, also representing many other racialized communities and others living in similar housing conditions in the metropolitan area of Lisbon and Porto. Many of these families continue to suffer daily stigmatization based on their ethnicity, marginalization by city councils and harassment by the police.
