A exhibition of photographs made by young residents of the Midland Road area in Bedford will go on display this Sunday 2nd June.

The photographs will be on display in the windows of 123CREATE on Midland Road, and are the result of a project local teenagers took part in as a Youth Innovation Zone earlier this year. The project was run by Bedford Creative Arts.

The exhibition coincides with this year’s Big Lunch, which Midland Road Area Residents Association (MARA) are hosting again this year. All are welcome to attend the street party, which is being held on Brereton Road.

The young people who were involved in this project are now continuing to work on initiatives for the area with Aysha Academy Trust, who run the community space at 123 Midland Road.

Bedford Borough Council awarded the Midland Road area Youth Innovation Zone status in 2012. Youth Innovation Zone is a government initiative, developed to achieve the recommendations of the “Positive for Youth” strategy, which sets out to ensure that all young people have access to high quality things to do, places to go, support services and can achieve their potential.

Opinion: Which tribe are you?

As Grayson Perry has observed, “most people want to fit in with their tribe in some way or another, so they give off signals, whether it’s with their clothes, their behavior, their car, their whatever, and gain status . . . and the signals are an unconscious display of who you are and where you
