Young Curators is a our programme for young people aged 16 to 19. Through Young Curators young people can develop their creative, collaborative and leadership skills by working together as a team on events and activities at the museum.
Since September 2018 the group has learnt how a museum works, had special access to collections and they’ve got hands-on with objects. They’ve meet new people and worked alongside museum professionals to see what goes on behind the scenes. They’ve done loads of digital work by making vlogs, creating their own virtual reality experiences and helping us to tell stories about our collections in new and unexpected ways. Whether helping to create an exhibition, leading a tour, running an event or writing a blog, they’ve used their creativity to bring history to life.
Taking part in Young Curators is also a great way to gain Gold Arts Award – a nationally recognised qualification equivalent to 16 UCAS points. You can find out more about Gold Arts Award at www.artsaward.org.uk
