I think late 2010s culture will start to decline in late 2019.

The OP pretty much said it all. The only thing I'd add is that it's generally the rise of Gen Z, as the oldest of them are college age now, and all the teens are of that gen. That includes the subcultures such as the challenge memes and March for Our Lives protests.

I predict that they'll be around and even peaking in 2020 and then start to decline in 2021.

The oldest of Gen Z are seniors in college now.

I would say that we could (sort of) already make an opinion about the older members of Gen Z (1997-2001).

2017-2018 school year is the first year when Gen Z dominated entire schools.

Do you agree with this?

2010-2012: Y
2013-2017: Y/Z
2018-2019: Z

I would put 2017 as a full gen Z year imo.

I'd actually disagree with that.

2017, in general, was more of a Y/Z cusp year, overall. 2017 was the last year before the Parkland shooting (and its aftermath), tide pods, and "Gen Z yellow". However, by 2017, it was already pretty clear that we were in the Z end of the spectrum.

Not to mention, news events that took place in 2017, such as the Berkeley controversy and the Charlottesville riots, were associated with Millennials rather than Gen Z.

I would say we are still within the Y/Z cusp, though clearly on the Z side of it by now.  Younger (90s born) Millennials however are still mostly in their twenties and are still culturally relevant.  The 2020s will be for Gen Z what the 2000s were for Millennials.
