Challenging perceptions of young people through photography


‘Shooting'. ‘Youth'. What springs to mind when you read these words? A violent act? Or using a camera? A label for young people? Or your teenage years? A new exhibition by 12 young photographers will explore these different perceptions, and the impact they have, in more detail. Shooting ‘Youth' examines contemporary attitudes to ‘youth' — a timely aspiration in the wake of widespread media coverage of the August riots and mixed accounts about young people's involvement in them. This exhibition encourages us all to examine our perceptions and expectations of young people and celebrates new artistic talent. Join us for the exhibition preview on Monday 17th October. Register your attendance at www.shootingyouth.eventbrite.com For more information visit www.kwmc.org.uk or contact Rachel on 0117 903 0444 The work in this exhibition was made during a three-week photography programme produced by Knowle West Media Centre, which was part of the Co-operative Foundation's Truth About Youth project, run in partnership with The Prince's Trust. Shooting ‘Youth': Challenging perceptions of young people through photography Opening: Monday 17 October, 6-7.30pm Exhibition: 17 October — 11 November 2011 Closed: Thursday 20 October, Saturdays & Sundays
