Youth voice? Whose voice? Young people and youth media practice in Hong Kong

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Thanks to advances in user-friendly, new media technology, many educational organizations around the world are supporting young people who wish to express their views through media production. The term “youth media practice᾿ refers to these media production activities. This paper raises questions about the possibilities and limitations of the idea of “promoting youth voice through media production,᾿ presenting some snapshots of current research contrasting different youth media settings in Hong Kong. Youth voice is not a naïve or transparent process, as in simple notions of self-expression, but I suggest that selves are constructed by and construct themselves through the processes of making video – mainly evident in the subject positions enacted though the performance of fictional identities and “voices.
