Young Curators Workshops

Young Curators is for 13-19 year olds who are interested in learning more about art and how galleries and museums work. The group meet to work on projects related to upcoming exhibitions. This might be working with a professional artist to create their own artworks to be displayed in the gallery, or working with the learning and curatorial team to develop an exhibition. The Lightbox is an Arts Award centre, so you can also work towards a Bronze, Silver or Gold Arts Award. This is a great opportunity to meet new people, get creative, have something unique on your CV and eat chocolate biscuits!

"At 13 she was one of the younger on the project, but said she felt comfortable and very welcome. As a parent paying for various activities I felt this course represented fantastic value for money. The quality of the teaching, materials and general administration combined with the inspiring location and opportunity to see your work exhibited means we only have praise to feed back to you."

- Helen Liu, parent of a previous participant
