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.
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.
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!
