Our Youth Panel, for young people aged 14 – 18, offers collective work experience opportunities across The MERL and Reading Museum as part of Museums Partnership Reading’s youth programme. We meet monthly to work on a variety of exciting projects which are great for developing a range of transferable skills. Our panel members influence current projects and programming and are change-makers within Reading’s culture and heritage sector.

Our project for this period is Green Screen. This project, based at The MERL, will invite the Youth Panel to co-create up to six short form videos with resident filmmaker, Real Time, using our collections and archives. Panel members will be inspired by a professional filmmaker who will guide them in how to make a short video inspired by environmental sustainability and climate change. The films created will enable audiences to engage with and feel empowered to make a difference to understanding actions that support the Life on Land UN Sustainable Development Goal.

Upcoming Dates (on the third Thursday of the month):

  • 18th January 
  • 15th February 
  • 21st March 
  • 18th April (not Green Screen)
