Not Just An iPod Generation
When: until Tuesday 24th July
Where: The Dome area of The Custard Factory, Gibb Street, Birmingham B9 4AA
The concept of the iPod Generation was part of a Government report in 2007 which claimed that today’s young people were insecure, pressurised, over-taxed and debt-ridden. It also suggested that they were switched off from the wider society and issues facing them.
One year on from last summer’s riots, ten young volunteers have teamed up to dispel the myth that young people are disengaged with society, by creating a set of photographs entitled ‘Not Just an iPod Generation’ which are being exhibited at the Dome area of The Custard Factory (that’s the bit behind Yumm Café with the tree in the middle) until Tuesday 24th July.
Exhibition Curator Tim Knappett of Envision said: “Britain’s young people need to be encouraged to take positive action and act as role models.” The volunteers’ energy and enthusiasm can be seen through the photos, all taken around Digbeth’s very own Custard Factory. If you’re in Digbeth today, why not pop in to the exhibition?
