About

What is transport to you? What do you love about it? What would you like to change? What is it like for other people to catch transport? How could I travel a different way? These are the questions I attempt to answer, through film, pictures, words and whatever else I can find.

My name is Jacqui. In 2013 I set out to explore the various emotions, interactions, communities, activities and inspiration associated with using transport. I took my cameras and all the courage I could muster to ten cities to film and to use every different mode of transport that was on offer – from rickshaws to metros, bicycles to buses, and of course my own two feet.  I talked to local people about their experiences as they showed me around their cities.  I have pieced together these insights into a documentary.

Here’s the trailer:

Since coming back I’ve had two children and lots of other ideas about transport so I’m going to continue my blog even though my life isn’t as exotic as boda boda’s in Nairobi and shared taxi’s in Casablanca. So please read through my blog to discover the thousands of little journeys we all take through our cities

Feel free to get in touch if you are interested in screening ‘A way we go’ and/or working on future projects together. We all have ‘a way we go’ to get around our cities – it’s time to discover them!

  2. Hi Jacqui, I met you in Mumbai airport just read through some of your posts and the film sounds like it is going to be great. Transport is such an interesting aspect of society to study I will definitely be checking back on your progress.

    Best of luck with all the work ahead of you.

  4. Hello Jacqui, This is a great site….just letting you know that the Munibung Hill website address is http://www.munibunghill.com At the moment it is listed with .org but it is now .com There is lots of information on the site including a gallery of pictures and copies of our newsletters. We would love for you to explore the Hill and include some pictures that we can then link to in our newsletter to increase the awareness of what you are doing in relation to active transport. Best regards, Stuart

    • Ok, I’ll change it. I’m trying to get up their with my friend Dani (a local) to explore more and I’ll check out you updated website and change the URL on my website. Out of interest have you thought of interesting ways that Munibung Hill could be incorporated into an alternative route on the GNW? Thanks for you comments too, I’m glad you like the site – it’s all very modest, but hopefully it’s useful for some people 🙂
