The V&A Youth Collective members will be showcasing three emerging designers through films documenting their career journeys and creative processes to inspire the next generation.

The designers’ work, in a variety of ways, responds to the climate crisis. Richard Ashton is co-founder of climate club, Adapt, who use design, art, humour and contemporary culture to communicate climate issues and reframe climate activism. Grace Emily Manning’s interdisciplinary approach is driven by environmentalism, encompassing film, performance and experimental storytelling. Scarlett Yang challenges waste in the fashion industry through developing innovative approaches at the intersection of fashion, design and technology. The V&A Youth Collective is a cohort of young people ages 16-24, who help shape our events and content for young people, while gaining inspiring insights into creative careers, the museum sector and skills development opportunities. The V&A Young People's Programme is supported by Fondation d’entreprise Hermès.
