Are you aged 16–21 and looking to develop new skills this summer? Interested in gaining a unique, in-depth experience of the British Museum and its collection? Apply now to the Museum’s new Summer Programme, Greengross Creatives.

This summer, 60 young people will have the chance to work on one of three strands that have been designed in collaboration with our youth collective – curation, film making and fashion.

You’ll be learning from industry professionals, including Museum staff, over the course of seven days, working collaboratively to create either a model exhibition, a short film or an outfit inspired by the Museum’s collection. Talks, tours and team building activities will run on all the strands. On Saturday 31 August, there will be an event to celebrate the work of the Summer Programme – the Greengross Creatives Showcase – where you will be able to share what you’ve created.

The programme is free and all materials are provided. Bursaries are available to cover lunch costs and travel costs within the London fare zones.

We’d particularly like to hear from young people belonging to communities underrepresented in the cultural sector.

Want to find out more? Sign up to our drop-in open day on Saturday 6 July.

Want to take part? Fill out an application form here. All applications must be submitted by 13.00, Thursday 11 July.
