A new and very exciting exhibition is unveiled to the public on the 1st July, a collaboration between the Museum of Youth Culture and Coventry's Herbert Museum.

'Grown Up In Britain' goes beyond the headlines, chronicling the everyday experiences and cultural impact of young people through photographs, objects and stories. Reflecting the diverse movements that have been forged by youth, the exhibition explores what unites us across generations and asks What Makes Britain?

Curated by and drawn from the extensive photographic collections of the Museum of Youth Culture, the exhibition is centred around public submissions representing people’s personal experiences of being young from across the UK, collected as part of the Museum’s ongoing Grown up in Britain campaign.

The Museum of Youth Culture is dedicated to the styles, sounds and social movements innovated by young people over the last 100 years. Championing the impact of youth on modern society, the Museum has been collecting photographs of youth and subculture movements for over 25 years. 

One of Dean's photographs from back in the early 2000's is included in the show, it features two brightly clothed ravers.
