Craig Easton, SaulSunderland 2018

What’s it like to be sixteen years old now?

This multimedia project brings together leading contemporary photographers with more than 170 young people from diverse communities across the country. Together they have created a series of vox pops that explore the hopes and fears of today’s sixteen year-olds.These give prominence to voices rarely heard.

Tate Exchange will host Sixteen this summer with a curated selection of works from the series. The space will be animated by a host of workshops and pop up events led by local young people and the photographers involved. Each event will open up the discussion about what it means to be sixteen, inviting audiences of all ages to consider their memories of our aspirations for this pivotal age.

This project is led by photographer Craig Easton and in partnership with Open Eye Gallery. Tate Exchange is one of four venues hosting the project across the city-region this summer. For more information and to find the full list of photographers involved visit
