A group of creative 14-24 year olds are currently working with the Museum of Croydon to identify and represent youth cultures.
The group produced podcasts based on objects in the Museum of Croydon in Spring 2010. Everyone chose two objects close to their heart that also said something about identity. The results are sometimes profound, sometimes funny, but always interesting.
