YAG meeting, Saturday 5 April 2014

At today’s Youth Advisors meeting, we reflected back over the last time we met on our Meet the Museum day, discussed how to put the experience of YAG on CVs and personal statements and met with members of the Visitor Experience team on the Great Map to find out what they are looking at doing to engage young foreign visitors. We also discussed ideas for this year’s summer school programme, looking at the possibility of developing our own audio guides and looking at the different ways we can tell stories through the use of spoken word, soundscapes and alternative narratives. We ended the meeting by heading over to the Queen’s House to test out the audio guides available there and talking about how we could change the format to make the narrative more interesting and appealing to young people.
