Junction - Introducing the Museum of London’s youth panel
The Junction youth panel was set up in early 2010 as part of the Stories of the World project. The panel is made up of young people aged between 16 and 21. Members have worked with the Museum to deliver the project and ensure the displays and events appeal to young people.
Junction members participated in all parts of the project, including helping to curate displays and organise public events. Junction members were also involved in exciting creative and media based activities, such as filmmaking and podcasting. Junction youth panel is the most important legacy for Stories of the World project at the Museum of London and the panel has continued to meet and participate in other Museum projects, managed by our dedicated Youth Programme Coordinator.
Nicola Wood – Junction panellist says ‘It’s a fun and interesting project which has allowed me to meet many new people and learn a variety of skills.’
Another panellist, Ed Lawless says ‘Being part of Junction is a fantastic opportunity to engage with the workings of the museum, voice the opinion of London's young people and influence decisions made.’
We are always looking for new members, so if you are aged between 16 - 21 email email@example.com to find out more.
