What is this project about?

This research project aims to engage young members of the Byron Youth Theatre (BYT) to actively participate as co-researchers in exploring young peoples’ lived experiences of growing up in a tourist destination. Findings will provide evidence to create an original theatre performance devised and performed by and for young people.

Why is this research important?

This research builds on previous studies that show that growing up in a tourist destination is a unique experience that shapes children and young people in so many ways.
