THE Salt Museum in Northwich has launched a bizarrely-named look at the different generations.
Running until April 26, the ‘R we S’D’frnt – my weekend’ display has been organised by Connexions Cheshire and Warrington and funded by the national Heritage Lottery Fund.
The idea behind it is modern-day teenagers asking the question ‘are we really that different to how our parents and grandparents were as teenagers’.
All the local youngsters who got involved learned interviewing and photography skills, then used them to conduct formal interviews with and take portrait pictures of others of all ages.
These photos and transcripts of the interviews are all displayed on the museum’s walls and in a commemorative book, along with artefacts familiar to teenagers of each generation.
Norma Guest, director of operations for Connexions, introduced the exhibition along with Michael Troy, a key worker on the project.
The Regalette at the Museum was also open playing sound bites from the interviews along with slideshows of all the photographs.
