The YCC gives young people the opportunity to get involved in the museum, handle real museum objects, discover interesting historical facts and try new craft activities - as well as help us develop new trails and activities for use in the museum - and make new friends!
Last year, Young Curators worked with an artist to create a display of paper costumes, influenced by our fashion exhibition last year - and this September they will be working with another artist - Fabric Lenny - to help create some new designs for the outside of the museum!
Future plans also include curating their own museum case - from selecting objects to researching and interpreting them for display.
|Young Curators have tried all sorts of things - even made butter!|
Young Curators have been busy creating some new trails and summer activities for Wakefield Museum. Pop in, and have a go at one of the activities created by the team!
