Exhibition and self-guided walk.

The urban public realm is a site of importance to teenagers. It is a site of the ‘everyday practise’ of their lives; walking to school, to the shops, wandering, hanging out and socialising. In these seemingly unremarkable moments, a sense of identity and of place emerges. Using mapping, drawing, photography and writing the group of six young people investigated their everyday journeys and neighbourhoods. The work on show captures a range of experience, conveying inherent playfulness, acute awareness of architectural detail and urban landscaping, of nature, of environmental neglect and of the intrinsic role of friends and family in their everyday lives.

The project has been supported by the Arts Council through the Engaging With Architecture Scheme and devised and run by Dorothy Smith (artist) andJackie Bourke (urban researcher).
