As an integral part of our mission to preserve, share, educate and celebrate youth culture, YOUTH CLUB conducts an extensive programme of exhibitions, talks and workshops, collaborating with cultural institutions and venues, alongside the support of world renowned brands.
YOUTH CLUB can work with you to curate, produce and source imagery to bring to life public and private exhibitions and events. Our extensive network of youth culture photographers cover the rich heritage of youth movements worldwide and allow us to tell the story of your tribe with authentic participants who documented them.
The rich history of youth culture is inherently intertwined with brand and corporate history, where both helped to define the other.
Working together with brands and organisations, YOUTH CLUB can uncover your youth culture story, providing the history and visual references to bring it to life. We have worked with a range of key brands such as Dr Martens, Fred Perry and Schuh to help them explore their identity through brand consultation.
Throughout our history, YOUTH CLUB lends its photographic resources to collaborate with cultural institutions. From our highly popular 3-month residency at the South Bank Centre with One Nation Under A Groove, to working as the official photo partner on the year long PUNK London celebration with the London Mayor's Office.
Our extensive archive and youth culture expertise can help bring an edge to your cultural programming and draw in new participants.
As a highly specialist youth culture resource, exhibitions are at the heart of what we do.
With an arsenal of key cultural institutions alongside DIY and intimate spaces, we love embracing the versatility of our resource and its ability to connect all corners of society.
Managing the entire process from curation to production, exhibitions are a brilliant way for us to share, educate and connect with other businesses, institutions and demographics. We are always on the lookout for future collaborations and venues as we work towards our goal of a Museum of Youth Culture. We're keen for you to become part of it's history.
Behind the photographs is a club of incredible photographers and creative talents, rich with subcutural knowledge. They were there to document these youth tribes and to forge the very nuances that make them unique.
Working with our photographers to share not only their work, but also their stories, is an important part of our mission to celebrate youth culture. From one-off talks to monthly programmes, we have the ability to produce engaging, interesting and press-worthy events.
As part of YOUTH CLUB’s commitment to preserve and share youth culture archives, we have delivered three successful preservation projects.
Identifying the needs for key cultural figures to establish a home for their youth culture heritage, we have worked with photographers Gavin Watson, Matthew Smith, and London Mayoral Candidate & Activist Lee Harris to develop a sustainable and long term platform to house and showcase their works as part of the YOUTH CLUB network.
We are always looking to expand upon these preservation projects so we can unearth more unseen content.
Zines and Publications
Printed publications are an incredible way for us to share our youth culture content. We have collaborated on several publications, including the subculture bible 'Street Style' with renowned anthropologist Ted Polhemus. YOUTH CLUB publishes a series of zines that showcases the unseen work of our photographers.
A vital conduit in YOUTH CLUB’s objectives, we are set to launch a printed and free widely distributed zine as part of our plan to share youth culture history. This new zine series will combine the essence of our DIY zine production alongside a proven publishing background.
A key part of YOUTH CLUB’s ongoing work to share and educate youth culture history, we are seeking to renovate and modernise our free online heritage resource.
The current site is available to over 200 Higher and Further Education schools, colleges and universities worldwide and has playedkey role in the introduction of youth culture studies within the arts and social sciences.
Working with a potential audience of 2 million students, we are seeking funding or sponsorship to take our education platform to the next level.
