About Generation Project
Celebrating Stoke-on-Trent’s unique ceramics heritage, The Generation Project engages young people in creating assets and events for their peers and future generations. Behind the scenes tours, trawling through archives to discover hidden stories, and hands-on art experiences are led by expert craftspeople. The ambitious project aims to nurture the heritage leaders of the future, impacting cultural organisations and practices in North Staffordshire and beyond.
The first instalment of the project tells the stories of the people who lived and worked in the Potteries, also delving into the stories behind the objects within the heritage buildings. In creating a series of plaques, supported by digital information, the project celebrates the people and places of The Potteries.
The exhibition includes a live research project to re-examine Wedgwood’s anti-slavery medallion, delivered by the V&A Wedgwood Collection in collaboration with young people to explore how a 21st-century protest symbol might appear.
