The new Changing Labels blog is now live!! Come and have a look!!
Changing Labels is a year-long project researching teenage fashion from the 1940’s to the present day. It is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and run by Getaway Girls in partnership with Leeds City Museum. The aim is for young women, aged 13 – 25 to produce a short film, oral histories and a fashion show showcasing their learning during their time on the project. They will also be putting together an outfit that will be displayed in Leeds City Museum, which represents teenage fashion in 2013. The project will look at similarities and differences in teenage fashion and how styles have evolved through youth culture. Along the way young women will be participating in interesting activities, including researching other influences such as music, hair and make-up, learning how to blog, film making, interviewing older people about their fashion memories and designing a logo. They will also have the opportunity to learn lots of new skills such as budgeting and event organisation and will visit other places that can help them in their work.

A group of young women from Getaway Girls visited the Manchester Arena to hear the Dalai Lama speak.
On Sunday 20th May 2012 the under 16′s Culture Group at Getaway Girls visited the Bradford Youth Development Partnership.
The aim of the visit was to meet with other young people who have been involved in Culture projects and find any similarities within our work.
Sharing experiences and stories over very traditional Indian food the young people, from a range of cultures themselves , gained knowledge of the lives and cultures of others.
Getaway Girls would like to thank Chris Johnson and all at Bradford Youth Development for the exchange and we look forward to hosting thier visit to Getaway Girls in the near future.
