Co-Curating an Art Exhibition with Children
Our brand-new exhibition, ‘A Voyage of Discovery’, is the result of on an in-depth schools project which saw us work with pupils aged 5 to 16 from 3 local schools. Because of the direct involvement of these young people, the exhibition is like nothing we’ve ever shown before. The students have given us a show that has an ambitions design and takes the visitor on an adventure into their imaginations. This talk will set out how the project was delivered, the challenges faced and overcome, and explain why we are so proud of what these children and young people have achieved.
