We offer young people aged 14-24 an opportunity to develop a greater understanding of our themes and objects in a creative and engaging way. As part of the projects we give young people special behind-the-scenes access to our collections and an opportunity to work with professional production companies, photographers and artists to learn practical in-depth skills and produce films, poetry, photographs and artworks to use in exhibitions and performances. The idea behind each project is for young people to gain hands-on skills in the creative sector, which will allow them to produce work they are able to use in portfolios and on their CVs and UCAS forms.
Each project usually lasts between 5 and 10 days and takes place in the evenings, at weekends and during school holidays. Past workshops include a film-making project to produce content for the Geffrye’s At Home with the World exhibition, and a digital photography and editing project in partnership with Adobe Youth Voices to create artworks, which depicted their ideas on the living rooms of the future.
All projects are free and refreshments are provided. Places are pre-booked in advance of the project.
