Young people and museums: engagement, co-curation and co-production with 14-24 year olds.

Creativeworks London Research Lab (convened by Alison Blunt, Mariza Dima, Maurice Davies and Alastair Owens)

Museums engage with young people in a wide range of ways, including the co-curation of exhibitions, the co-production of creative and interpretative work, and participation on youth advisory groups and in other projects. This half-day event organized by the ‘Audiences’ strand of Creativeworks London will bring together colleagues working in museums, heritage, youth work and academia to discuss the wider policy contexts of engaging with young people and examples of engagement, co-curation and co-production in practice in a range of museums. The afternoon will include a panel discussion, a series of presentations, and the opportunity to find out more about the involvement of young people from New Horizon with the ‘Homes for the Homeless’ exhibition at The Geffrye Museum, and to visit the exhibition.
