This is an Amersham Museum run after-school group for 14-18 year olds. The group provides opportunities for young people to work with museum professionals to develop their skills and understanding of museum curation. This includes:
- Developing and caring for a museum collection
- Curating and designing exhibitions
- Developing learning resources
- Evaluation techniques
Young Curators meets once a fortnight on a Wednesday afternoon during term time, 4.30pm-5.30pm
Participating in the Young Curators programme 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. If extra hours are needed to fulfil the commitments of these schemes, participants can be given additional work to do between the sessions.
Joining Young Curators
To join Young Curators fill in the registration form below. The form must be completed by a parent or guardian for those aged 14-17 and by the participant if aged 18.
