Teenagers of Manchester & New York City Unite!
Summer 2013 and we have teamed up with Rush Philanthropic Youth Arts Centre in Brooklyn, New York City to explore what it is like to be a teenager in Manchester and NYC. We will be looking at language, music, street style, history and culture and creating a digital map of our city that tells the story of what it’s like to be a teenager in Manchester today.
On the project we;
- Learned about life in Brooklyn and what is important to teens
- Worked with MC Visceral to create a Manchester poem
- Created a visual timeline of key historical events and inventions
- Made an Urban Dictionary and compared the language with slang from NYC
- Visited Museum of Science & Industry to find out about our industrial heritage
- Interviewed teenagers around Manchester
- Screen printed a map that will be sent over to Rush
