Youth blog events

We offer a range of opportunities for young people to get involved. There are regular arts, craft, design and digital sessions for 11 - 16 year olds during school holidays including making your own tshirts, creating digital comics and crafting handmade soaps. We also run workshops and projects for Youth Groups which are tailored to each group's interests and needs.

You can also help us make our exhibitions, projects, events, programme and building more youth-friendly by joining our Geffrye Young Producers.

Want to set up a youth panel in your museum? The Geffrye Museum’s Youth Advisory Panel have partnered up with Kids in Museum’s to write and produce How to Set Up a Youth Panel – Ten Top Tips – a handy guide to pop in your pocket, so you’re never without ideas on how best to include young people.

Want to find out about how we have approached youth engagement work, and how young people have actively contributed and shaped the programme here at the Geffrye? The Geffrye Museum has produced a toolkit for working with young people, which shares our experience and knowledge with the sector – Working and Engaging with Young People: A journey of lessons, collaborations, active participation and reciprocity, demonstrating how museums can benefit from young people’s opinions – a useful resource for organisations interested in developing their own youth participation work. 

All activities are free. Join our Young People’s Facebook page, receive email updates, follow us on Instagram, or follow us on Twitter @GeffryeYouth to find out all the latest information.
