Engage Daily Update - 18 August
Paisley Museum Youth Consultation
Paisley Museum is looking consult young people aged 13 – 19 and living in Renfrewshire, to gather their ideas about the museum and their feedback on how to make it more youth-friendly when it reopens.
We’d love to get feedback from young people on the kind of welcome experience they would like to find in the museum, what kind of stories and themes they’re most interested in, and what activities they would like to engage with. This would be an opportunity for young folk to learn more about the museum redevelopment project, get some insights into what will be inside it, and contribute their ideas about what they would like the museum to be.
If you’re an organisation working with teenagers in the local area, and you’re interested to arrange a meeting to find out more, please contact Stef Donini, Audience Research Officer for Paisley Museum Re-imagined firstname.lastname@example.org
