YAG Meeting, 24 August 2012
In this meeting, we explored a team agreement of house rules for the Youth Advisory Group. We looked at ways to include everyone’s ideas to make this a safe, co-operative, respectful place for learning and sharing. We came up with lots of good suggestions, including bringing enthusiasm and a positive attitude, have the right to opt out, and allow others to fully explain their ideas before starting a new conversation.

We also talked about making YAG handbook for new members to join, containing a history of the YAG and the Museum, what we do, previous projects, contact details, maps (perhaps with highlights of the collection from the Youth Advisors), trivia about the Museum and fun stuff! We will explore this more and hopefully get to work with the Museum’s Design team to make it happen.
We talked about the questions we will explore over the next year in order to understand and share the themes of the National Maritime Museum…
The Youth Advisors started adding their ideas to these questions and sharing what ideas we have about the sea.

Our next meeting will be in September – Shauna is seeing about a trip to Museum of Docklands to meet with another youth group there…
