EP19: Jon Swinstead

Season 1, Ep. 19

Today’s fascinating Patreon-only bonus episode features curator Jon Swinstead.


Jon is responsible for curation and creation of the First Museum of Youth Culture, opening in Digbeth, Birmingham in 2027. The Museum of Youth Culture - - is a new museum dedicated to the styles, sounds and social movements innovated by young people over the last 100 years. Championing the impact of youth on modern society, the Museum of Youth Culture is formed from the archives of YOUTH CLUB, a non-profit Heritage Lottery & Arts Council Funded collection incorporating photographs, ephemera, objects and oral histories celebrating our shared youth culture history.


From the bomb-site Bicycle racers in post-war 1940s London, to the Acid House ravers of 1980s Northern England, the Museum of Youth Culture empowers the extraordinary everyday stories of growing up in Britain.


Ladies and gentlemen – meet Jon Swinstead...
