I created ‘ADAPT’ zine with the aim to follow the creative paths of young people who have chosen to uproot from their home in Northern Ireland. Through conducting a series of interviews and photoshoots this zine aimed to capture their identity. Providing an insight into how they are influenced by our culture, heritage and what their identity means to them.
As a part of the first generation to grow up in Northern Ireland after the troubles, my friends and I spent our teenage years involved with the growing art, music and fashion scene in Northern Ireland. We developed as artists, influenced by our culture in Belfast and are now apart of a group of young creatives that moved over to England to pursue our studies and careers within the art and fashion industry. Through ADAPT I aimed to shine a light on this new generation of Northern Irish who grew up in a post conflict environment.
