God is my Director

Youth ministry, movies, no drugs and a variable amount of Rock ‘n Roll

Hot Fuzz

Posted by Martin on February 10, 2007

Great article from the bizarre-sounding Fuzz Kitto (just check out that picture) in the new issue of Youthwork magazine on Youth Culture. Fuzz is an experienced youth ministry consultant (now we have consultants in our industry – we must be going places!) from Australia but who travels the world, and his theory is that there are only really a handful of dominant youth cultures, which are then reinterpreted locally in cultural contexts all over the world. An example would be the way in which Urban young people in South London have reinterpreted the clothing, music and style of black youth culture in LA. Some thought-provoking stuff in there – and most importantly – some thinking that I haven’t seen anywhere else.
