What is Who Were You?

Who Were You is a creative project focused on youth culture, run by The Warren Youth Project. 


We want young people to capture what it is like to be young in Hull now, taking photographs that show a snapshot of life in 2022. We also want other generations to send us photographs of their youth, so we can compare life then and now. 


These comparisons will be showcased in a public exhibition at the end of the year!

What are we looking for?

We are open to receive photographs from the public showcasing their youth in Hull. This is open for anyone over the age of 25. 


We hope to get as many different eras as possible to have an eclectic range of photographs that document as wide a timeframe as possible.


We would also love to interview some members of the public about the submitted photos and find out more about your individual experiences of growing up in Hull, but this is not a requirement in order to get involved. 

Why get involved as a member of the public? 

1 - Share a piece of your history with the city

2 - Have the potential to have your photographs displayed in a public exhibition

3 - Connect with young people and members of the community

To submit your photograph as a member of the public you can:

Email it across to along with a photograph submission form (find this below).  

This could include:

Who is in the photo? 

Where and when was it taken?

(Please also state if you would be willing to be interviewed.)
