Grown up in Brent: 100 years of youth culture

Running throughout 2020, ending in an exhibition in 2021 at Brent Civic Centre.

What was and is it like growing up in Brent? Supported by Brent 2020 Culture Fund, the Museum of Youth Culture has collected photographs, ephemera and oral histories to tell the borough’s youth culture story over the last 100 years through the public’s memories. From hanging out in your teenage bedroom to reminiscing about school days, from your best mates to first loves.

In response to the current Covid-19 crisis, Museum of Youth Culture are working with care homes and other social care providers to create an easy to use in-the-box version of their reminiscing sessions, helping support friendship, wellbeing and memory for those most at risk of being isolated over the coming months.
