There’s a place in the city that you might know as Hindmarsh Square or it’s more recent Kaurna designation Mukata. But to many who frequent the northern sectors of the square, it’s simply Emo Park.
Emo Park, a name informally recognised by the council, is a significant place to a generation of young people who’ve been gathering there for more than a decade.
CityMag reporter Angela Skujins wanted to find out more about the young people of Emo Park, and what she discovered was a story about identity and connection – but also about alienation.
In this week’s episode, you’ll hear this story – as told by the young people who gather there.
