Come along to the screening of this new and exciting work, which includes a presentation of certificates to the young men who have participated the project to celebrate the work that they have completed.
‘Passions of Youth’ is a community project based in Manchester and Salford in which working-class young men in their teens have worked with historians, youth and community workers and film-makers to acquire new skills in historical research, oral history techniques and film-making.
This celebration event is about the stories and images they have created about the history of their leisure pastimes and what these pastimes mean to them.
The groups which took part were FC United, Collyhurst & Moston Lads Club, Salford Youth Hub, and a Basketball team at The Factory Youth Zone. The project has been funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and Manchester Metropolitan University.
Forever Manchester is delighted to support this event as part of our ongoing work in Moston & Harpurhey supporting and promoting community led activity. The aim of our presence in these communities is to increase participation in social action and volunteering; grass roots sport and physical activity; culture activity and the arts; and youth leadership and personal development.
