Hanging Out – Youth Culture Then and Now
Hanging Out looks at youth culture in the 1950s and 60s and its influence on young people today. The display is a result of a project which brings together historic material with work made by over one hundred youths from a wide range of cultural backgrounds in schools, colleges, heritage organisations and community centres. Work made by participants in workshops is displayed alongside the objects that inspired them, including garments from the famous army surplus retailer Laurence Corner, images of protest by photographer Neil Kenlock and iconic celebrity images from the V&A’s collection.
Featured on the night were the premiere of the documentary ‘Hanging Out: Youth culture then and now’ and the launch of the Project’s publication ‘Hanging Out’ as well as four monologues inspired by oral history interviews, written and performed by young volunteers.
