Durham Cathedral Young Curators Scheme

Taster Day -Young Curators, Saturday 27 June

10.30am – 12.00noon & 1.00pm – 2.30pm, The Education Centre

Young Curators is a new and exciting group for young people aged 11-16.  Young people can find out how museums put on exhibitions and what happens behind the scenes. Young Curators will have unique opportunities to explore the new exhibition areas of Durham Cathedral. They'll learn how to handle and display objects, interpret the collections and help develop a new children’s book about the Collections of Durham Cathedral. We are offering taster days where potential participants can find out what Young Curators will be like. 

A free event – contact education@durhamcathedral.co.uk or call 0191 374 4070 to reserve a place. Additional Taster Days take place on Tuesday 21 July and Wednesday 19 August. 

From September 2015 Young Curators will meet on the second Saturday morning of every month at the Cathedral from 10.30am-12.30pm.   Young Curators is part of the Cathedral's Open Treasure project, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
