Growing Up in the New Age is an artist-initiated research project which explores an alternate world: forays into all things `New Age' set against the era’s sociopolitical happenings, from communes in the south of France to squatting in South London and `free school' education. Using a range of approaches -- including photography/digital imaging, film and video, writing, collecting, re-using archival materials and the web -- Growing Up in the New Age sets out to reconsider the social utopias of the 1960s and early ‘70s, and what we might learn from them today.
