Event description

Description

Recognising the UK’s pioneering role as a world leader in youth culture and self-expression, the Museum of Youth Culture project by YOUTH CLUB will celebrate our rich tapestry of social movements, subcultures, sounds and styles that span the generations and genres of post war Britain to modern day.

The Museum of Youth Culture project will house a specially commissioned exhibition, 'Unity through Subculture', featuring photography, ephemera and oral history. The exhibition will explore the power of fashion, music and self expression to forge a vital common thread amongst young people. Unity though Subculture is a celebration of creative freedom and it’s ability to break down walls in a world of increasing unrest.

Renowned youth culture photographer Gavin Watson will be speaking on Thursday 27th about his seminal work on one of the most misunderstood youth subcultures - Skinheads - through a transition to 90s Rave Culture and on to his contemporary work as a practicing photographer and work for brands such as Doctor Martins.

As part of a Heritage Lottery funded program the Museum will conduct a renovation project that will start the process of digitising 15,000 images by 15 key photographers, that will result in the world’s first fully researched and catalogued youth culture heritage resource. With new research such as locations, movements and cultural references, the project will create a freely searchable digital platform to inspire future generations.
