A Skate Library aims to develop a cultural skateboarding multimedia library gathering universal knowledge through social work coverage, & academic research within skateboarding.
To do so, we are classifying this multicultural expertise in various fields that range from social change, education, history, well being, authenticity, urbanism, lifestyle, ethics to empowerment and community development.
Our goal is to provide a selected inventory covering the most of the positive cultural wealth legacy skateboarding is and will be offering in order to inspire social change, believing skateboarders -having a front row seat in the streets and carrying strong community values- can be a key link to address the main issues facing society.
By collecting this cultural capital for all to use as they see fit, we aim to provide the knowledge and tools required to enhance communication, foster new ideas, synergies and collective work between skateboarders and the public.
A Skate Library is a Forever Playground initiative in collaboration with Two Set Magazine.
