We had an excellent time interviewing young people for the 2019-20 Young Curators programme. Every young person we met was full of creativity- we really wished we could select everybody. We also met with some of Harlow’s fantastic art teachers and careers staff, and the excellent team at Rainbow Services, all of whom helped us recruit our new team.
Week 1 is always about getting to know each other. Our first icebreaker created a web of connections: how many interests do we share?
We also ask each person to choose a work from the collection and two words to capture how they are feeling- it’s always interesting to compare with two new words at the end of the project.
