Exciting new project with Young Critics/3rd Act Critics and Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales

National-Museum-Wales

Young Critics and 3rd Act critics are working in partnership with Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales (ACNMW) http://www.museumwales.ac.uk/ on a new free project focusing on the quality and standards of exhibitions and programming at their sites across Wales.

ACNMW are keen to generate feedback and data from interested visitors regarding what makes a good exhibition and programme. The project aims to make the work of museums more accessible to the general public and increase the reach of culture and heritage. The project may also focus on Cadw sites and local museums and galleries.

The project is expected to last for 6 months initially, before being reviewed, and participants will be expected to commit to the lifetime of the project. Staff at National Museum Wales will provide training and workshops, and exclusive expert guidance on their roles. All participants will be supported in critical response methods and use of digital technologies to develop critical thinking skills.

The first workshop will take place on Saturday the 5th of December 10-1pm at National Museum Cardiff, Cathays Park, Cardiff CF10 3NP.

If you aged between 12-25 or 50+ and would like to be involved please contact project coordinator Guy O’Donnell on odonnell.guy@gmail.com
