The Museum Of Youth Culture – will be visiting the Fred Perry Cardiff store: Saturday 4th May -10am-4pm, to collect submissions of photos and items that evoke memories of local people’s youth along with a free talk from 2-3pm with former Cardiff student and now award winning photographer, Yushy.

Whether it’s getting ready in your teenage bedroom, bundling in the car with your mates for your first festival or documenting your journey into town with a full facebook photo album – we want to represent you and the youth of Britain.

This FREE in store event will include a talk from Yushy – 26 year old, photojournalist. Who cut his teeth documenting Cardiff’s gritty Drum and Bass scene and has gone on to photograph music and protest culture. He will talk us through his career break in Cardiff that gave him the opportunity to work in the music industry and discuss documentary, portraiture, fashion and find out how he captures those impressive scenes.⁠

MOYC and Fred Perry outreach needs memories and voices from around the regions – photos, flyers and ticket stubs to record these fundamental rites of passage.

All the photographs and ephemera submitted on the day will be scanned into our digital archive and become part of a MOYC’s, ‘Grown Up in Britain’ collection, a national archive documenting the joys of growing up in Britain. These memories form our social heritage and what may seem mundane now will be tinged with nostalgia in a heartbeat.
