Young Curators Summer Sessions – 1

Young Curators Summer Sessions

Tuesday 30 July, Friday 2 August, Tuesday 6 August, Friday 9 August.
11am – 3pm.
Age 14 – 18.
Free, lunch included.

Are you interested in the arts? Would you like to work in a museum in the future? Then we want to hear from you!

In these free summer sessions, you will work with industry professionals to develop your creative skills and understanding of museum collections. Across the 4-week programme, you will get hands-on experience working with The Atkinson’s own collections. You will learn life skills such as evaluation techniques, teamwork practices and gain workplace experience.

Participating in the Young Curators Summer Sessions can be counted as volunteer time, which can be used as part of the requirement for a Baccalaureate programme or for the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. This experience can also be used as evidence towards the achievement of your Art’s Award (Bronze, Silver and Gold). Participation in this scheme may improve your CV, demonstrating to prospective employers that you are keen to learn and are interested in acquiring new skills.
