FutureEverything, GMCA and GM Arts are thrilled to announce the launch of this place [of mine], an online 3D virtual playground showcasing young people’s artwork and ideas for the future of their high streets and towns.
With high street regeneration once again becoming a major focal point for our Government, this place [of mine] provides a platform for young people to share their ideas and inspire change across Greater Manchester.
Since November 2020, the team at FutureEverything have been working with for ten inspiring Young Producers (from Rochdale, Stalybridge, Oldham, Leigh and Beswick). The aim was to explore their relationship to their local town centre whilst learning new skills in collaboration, developing new visions for the future as well as applied digital skills. Created entirely online during the pandemic, the outputs of their creativity can now be experienced through this place [of mine].
We have developed a downloadable Young People’s Guide to provide additional support and guidance, enabling youth organisations and youth groups to deliver online activities for their young people to engage with and further explore during lockdown.
