Throughout 2020, Queer Artist Amy Pennington held a series of conversations and exchanges with young people living in St Helens who identify as LGBTQ+/ LGBTQ+ curious/ an ally to explore experiences of growing up queer in a small town in the 90s to experiences of what its like for young people growing up today in St Helens, what has changed and what has stayed the same?
Through conversations and creative workshops Amy will work with young people to compare and contrast Amy’s experiences growing up queer in a small town in the 90s with young people’s experiences of growing up and living in St Helens:
What are the differences?
What has stayed the same?
This collaboration will culminate in two new artworks which will take the form of a piece of writing and an accompanying film work.
