Late lunch talk: 21st Century Kids – Bristol through their eyes

Our 21st Century Kids display explores what it’s like to be young in Bristol today.

We travelled far and wide visiting youth groups, schools and colleges to speak to over 200 young from all walks of life.

Many of the young people then worked with us to develop the project. We didn’t just want to make a display about young people we wanted to involve young people at every stage. All of the photographers, filmmakers and researchers involved were under 24.

At every stage of the project we consulted with our own Bristol Museums Young Collective and a team of external collaborators.They recorded over 70 interviews talking about Bristol, their loves and hates, and what they wish older people would understand.  The stories are comical, tragic and above all hopeful.

What were the challenges in working on this project? What did we learn from the experience? Join us to find the answers and to ask your own questions… and to see why the city’s future feels in safe hands.

Speaker: Finn White, Engagement officer for communities
