The More Than a Hoodie project is a celebration of young men of colour and the things that bring them happiness and connection in a world that often stigmatises and stereotypes them. A free exhibition of photographs will take place in the Albany CaffA in March 2024, and you can also view the online gallery here.

Taking part 

We are still looking for submissions from young men of colour (age 12-24) to feature in the online exhibition and future in-person exhibitions.

Whether you’re an experienced photographer or just love taking snaps with your phone, More Than a Hoodie invites you to capture the things/people/moments or places that make you feel happy and connected and redefine what it means to be young, black, and full of potential.

It could be a picture of your friends playing football, hanging out listening to music, going to your favourite café or a selfie in your favourite place. It can be a photo you’ve already taken or one you want to take especially for this project.

To take part just:
