Sunderland Young Urbanists

Young Urbanists is an ongoing project exploring meanwhile use of a former brewery site in Sunderland, on the River Wear. Young people from a nearby secondary school have taken part in a series of workshops to explore both the heritage and potential development of the site. Working alongside an artist, participants produced colourful vinyl maps, which transferred to postcards and t-shirts. The young people were supported to run their own pop-up market stall, where they talked to shoppers and visitors about the changes taking place at the site, and where they handed out the cards and sold their t-shirts.
