The Museum of Youth Culture Project

The Museum of Youth Culture Project


Recognising the UK’s pioneering role as a world leader in youth culture and self-expression, the Museum of Youth Culture project by Youth Club will celebrate our rich tapestry of social movements, subcultures, sounds and styles that span the generations and genres of post war Britain to modern day. 

The Museum of Youth Culture project will house an exhibition of photography, ephemera and oral history alongside a rich educational programme, providing training in the photography industry and archival skills and talks by leading photographers, youth culture speakers and the cult social anthropologist Ted Polhemus – author of the style bible ‘Street Style’. As part of a Heritage Lottery funded program the Museum will conduct a renovation project that will start the process of digitising 15,000 images, that will result in the world’s first fully researched and catalogued youth culture heritage resource.

With new research such as locations, movements and cultural references, the project will create a freely searchable digital platform to inspire future generations.
