TWENTY21 is funded by the Heritage Lottery and will run for the next 2 years. It is for secondary school aged young people in North Lanarkshire, who are interested in photography, social and local history, and with a focus on becoming young curators collecting an archive of topical subjects including:

– Climate Change
– LGBTQ+ History
– Immigration and Migration
– International Women
– Urban Decay
– Scottish Language

Weekly sessions take place every Saturday 1.15-3.15pm at Summerlee Photomedia Studio and involve invited guests from diverse backgrounds being interviewed by the young people for podcasts and having their photographic portrait taken. The young people will be trained up on interview techniques, photography and on how to archive and exhibit the collection of work at Summerlee Museum, which the young people are encouraged to take ownership.

TWENTY21 encourages diversity and inclusion and as part of the weekly sessions provides food and snacks.
