Future Shots Event


Surface Gallery would like to invite you to Future Shots, a unique evening courtesy of Just Ask Nottingham!

Young people part of the Just Ask project’s employment campaign organised an event called Photo Jam in the Market Square in May, asking young people what motivates them. These young people were asked to write down what motivates them onto a board and were then photographed. The project was inspired by a survey completed in the Victoria Centre in October when over 1000 people were asked why so many younger people were unemployed. Many felt that young people were unmotivated and many employers did not see the value of having younger people on their team. This sparked the idea of the “Photo Jam” event as they wanted to show employers that there are motivated young people in Nottingham. The photos have been posted on the Just Ask Facebook page and we held a competition for the most liked photo / most inspired motivation. The top 30 most popular photos are to be shown in the motivational event at Surface Gallery on Thursday 30th August at 6pm – 8pm.

On the night, our young people on the project will be performing their motivational speeches and canap├ęs and drinks will be served.

The young people would like to invite you and your colleagues to come and support them on the night.
