Below are some images from my time working as a Young Explainer with the Plymouth City Museum & Art Gallery back in 2009. The work revolved around the ‘Sir Joshua Reynolds: The Acquisition of Genius‘ exhibition.
My time as a Young Explainer included-
Being part of the group deciding which image would be placed on the back of Plymouth’s Big Screen TV as part of ‘The Big Blueprint‘ project.
Collaborating on a talk to the public concerning Reynolds as a Collector of art (titled ‘Reynolds the Collector‘) with one of my colleagues.
Collaborating on a small slideshow to be featured on Plymouth’s Big Screen TV with a colleague. Creating the initial design concept independently and working on the texts, images and sequence with a colleague.
Talking on the local BBC radio with a colleague.
The experience was very rewarding and gave me valuable insights into many facets of Museum work and public engagement.
