Lauren is a young art worker originally from Bristol who came to Huntly first as an intern after finishing her art history degree at Glasgow University. As part of the Year of the Young People scheme she followed a 3 months research by local school student Clyde Williamson. Both worked over the period of a year with the next generation of voices in Huntly questioning whether young people in Huntly have a say in what happens around them.
Whose voices are heard? How can we ensure we are responsibly consuming, distributing and creating news and information? How can we develop engaging methods of communication with and for young people? The project builds on previous research from Young Intern, Clyde Williamson's summer 2018 project, Meals and Movies exploring themes of democracy amongst young people.
