A one-year heritage project led by young people from EYST that has researched young
people’s experiences of living and growing up in Wales
We are a group of young people from diverse backgrounds who have been volunteering on this exciting project to research and capture young people’s individual experiences of growing up in Wales.
‘As a young person it can be difficult to know where you fit in as there’s lots of different communities to go to’
Experiences can depend on who we surround ourselves with and can be influenced by what the media say about young people, ethnic minorities or different religious groups.
During the project we produced a film, exhibition and teaching resource that aimed to explore and show what growing up in Wales today means to us. We hope we can get you thinking and talking about what makes us who we are and how this makes Wales so unique and in particular to think about the word ‘migrant’ – what this means to you and to us!
We are always looking for more content and contributors for the website to write and capture the issues that are important to young people.
