EXCEPT photo comp winners' exhibition: 9 - 30 March, Templeman Library
10 February 2017
Winning entries from a photo competition exploring the transition from youth to adulthood as seen through the lens of young people, will be on display in March at the University's Templeman Library.
You(th) Vision is part of Horizon 2020 research project EXCEPT, which explores social exclusion of youth in Europe. Dr Olena Nizalova leads the UK EXCEPT team in developing effective, innovative policy initiatives to help young people in Europe overcome labour market insecurities and related risks. Young people are the heart and voice of EXCEPT and the project acts as a facilitator to ensure their stories are told and heard by Europe's policy makers.
Entries from more than 200 young people across Europe reflect on the meaning of adulthood and how it feels to become adult nowadays.
Competition winners include Fillipo, 21 from Italy whose entry (pictured) represents his feelings about becoming adult: 'I think I will be really adult when I can see my father in the mirror'.
The Templeman exhibition runs from 9 – 30 March.
