YAG Workshop, Saturday 17 May 2014

We started thinking about the Sea and had an introduction to the new YAG project in this meeting. The Youth Advisors will work together to produce an audio guide aimed at other young people sharing stories from the Museum’s main themes.

In this meeting we started thinking about the first theme, which is the Royal Navy. The Youth Advisors explored Nelson, Navy, Nation and used gallery floorplans to note what they were interested in and what was inspiring.

YAG Workshop, Saturday 25 January 2014

 At the last YAG meeting, we learnt about upcoming plans for the Museum in 2014 and opportunities for the Youth Advisory Group to get involved. The Youth Advisors started thinking about different careers in the Museum and what the different departments do. They made a wishlist of the departments they’d like to work with in the future, and then advised on YAG work experience programmes. This will be a YAG only opportunity which the Youth Advisors will help to develop.

YAG Workshop, Saturday 14 December 2013

It was our last YAG meeting of 2013! We visited Turner & the Sea exhibition and had the YAG meeting in the Royal Observatory Greenwich, and saw a Planetarium show. We reflected on 2013 and looked forward to 2014. 

Happy holidays from the Youth Advisors!

Youth Advisors Thu and Terri share what we got up to…

When visiting Turner & the Sea exhibition, I was overwhelmed by the excitement of visiting a new exhibition that was different. One of my favourite paintings was the Battle of Trafalgar and a blue sunset. This was because these two paintings sand out from the others and I thought the textures on both were amazing. It was quite good because there were paintings that showed unfinished work with vivid colours.

After the Turner  & the Sea exhibition, we had a 5 minute break and then we went to the Planetarium to see a show called The Sky Tonight: Christmas Stars and it was about the sky and what to look for in it. I thought the show was spectacular!

YAG Workshop, Saturday 07 September 2013

Today we welcomed new members to Youth Advisory Group from Threads Summer School. Summer School student, Posola shares what happened…

At the end of the Threads Summer School, all the participants were invited to join the Youth Advisory Group held at the National Maritime Museum. I went to my first YAG session today and learnt a bit of what being a Youth Advisor is all about. Shortly after, we devoured some pizzas then headed off to the Visions of the Universe exhibition (we got to go in for free!) where I spent the next couple of hours marvelling at the beautiful photographs of our Universe. I’ll be coming back for the next session ready to plan some activities for Recruitment Day 🙂
