Young people from Manchester have continued their collaboration with award-winning designers, Forever Agency, to create a series of eye-catching hoardings which are situated around the new Youth Zone site in Gorton.
After revealing the new name and logo for HideOut Youth Zone earlier this year, their latest collaboration with Forever Agency includes the unveiling their specially designed hoardings around the Youth Zone site, located on Hyde Road.
Inspiration for the hoardings came from the Youth Zone’s offer to provide young people with somewhere to go, something to do, and someone to talk to, 7 days a week for just 50p per visit.
“The designs give people a taste of what’s to come once the Youth Zone is open next year” said one young person involved in the design process.
Once officially open in Summer 2020, the state-of-the-art Youth Zone will provide thousands of young people from across Manchester with access to over 20 activities per night, from sports in the four-court sports hall, martial arts room and 3G kick pitch; to art, drama, music, cooking and enterprise and employability opportunities.
Earlier this year the young people’s development group unveiled their vision for the new OnSide Youth Zone located on Hyde Road. Working together with Forever Agency, their first task was to create a name, logo and brand identity for the new £6.6million Youth Zone.
‘HideOut’ Youth Zone was chosen by over 2,000 young people in a city-wide poll led by the young people’s development group in partnership with local schools.
