AN EXAMINATION of the typical weekend for a teenager in 2009 has opened at Castle Parks Arts Centre.
Titled “R We S’ D’frnt - My Weekend”, the exhibition compares life for a modern teenager compared to when their parents and grandparents were the same age and is open until Thursday, June 25.
It features photographs and transcripts of interviews which are displayed on the walls and in a commemorative book. Artefacts familiar to teenagers of each generation are also on display.
The project behind the exhibition was run by Connexions, the young persons support group in Cheshire, and asked teenagers if they were really different to their parents and grandparents.
Connexions spokesperson Michael Troy said: “The young people involved in the project learned interviewing and photography skills, conducted formal interviews and took portrait pictures of everyone who took part. These interviews and pictures form a book, which is also on display.
“Each person was interviewed and recorded digitally talking about a typical weekend.”
