Amgueddfa Cymru | National Museum Wales Hands on Heritage –Youth Heritage Facilitator Workshop Event
Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales (ACNMW) is looking to recruit young creatives, educators, change makers and doers to help design and deliver activities and events for the Heritage Lottery Funded Hands on Heritage project. Hands on Heritage aims to transform the way young people perceive, and engage with the museum It will act as a catalyst to give young people a voice in all aspects of our work.
AC-NMW recognises that young people represent a wide demographic, including those from differing socio-economic, educational, ethnic and geographical backgrounds. AC-NMW also understands that young people want opportunities to take the lead and shape the activities and themes through which they engage with the museum. They also need work experience to be able to find future employment in the sector. Not everyone can afford to volunteer, and young people’s input and work should be valued, therefor we will be offering paid opportunities for peer-led youth heritage projects.
Youth Heritage Facilitators will work with AC-NMW to design and deliver a range of heritage engagement activities and events; from pop-up exhibitions to discussion rounds, co-curation, explorations of the museum collections, games, informal learning, discussions, production of film, art and text, symposiums and celebrations. Youth Heritage Facilitators will be responsible for marketing and advocating for their projects, as well as carrying out some data collection and filling in reports about their projects. We are looking to recruit a range of young people aged 18-25 who have an interest in delivering activities and projects with the museum. We are looking for critical thinkers, passionate change makers and inspiring creatives. You do not need a formal education background to apply; this is an opportunity for young people interested in working with art, science, heritage and culture who want a chance to break into the sector. We will be offering training and support. Workshop participants will receive a 50£ stipend.
