In the cultural sector we have a tendency to see young people as a group, who sometimes need to be consulted with and to whom projects or opportunities are offered on our terms. This approach often means only those with the most cultural capital find us. It’s important that they do, but we want to attract other young people too. If we start to think about the systems we are creating to engage our young people, and design our programmes according to who we want to engage, then who gets to create and consume culture will start to look very different.
