The British Museum Youth Collective


Part of the Young People's Summer Programme

Supported by the Greengross Family

The British Museum is developing an exciting new Summer Programme for Young People supported by the Greengross Family.

We're looking for 16-24–year–old Londoners who are up for the challenge of forming a Youth Collective to co–design the Summer Programme – planning, organising and participating in all the events and activities.

  • Collaborate with other young people and Museum professionals
  • Strengthen your CV
  • Be part of the collective for six months, meeting weekly (travel will be reimbursed)
  • We’re looking to recruit a diverse group of young people who want to gain skills in:

  • Curating
  • Marketing
  • Design
  • Film making
  • Event planning
  • No prior museum experience is necessary, but Youth Collective members need to be excited about history and culture from around the world as this will be the inspiration for the Summer Programme.

    We’d particularly like to hear from young people local to the Museum in Camden and Islington, and from communities under-represented in the cultural sector.

    Applications to be part of the youth collective for this round are now closed. If you are interested in taking part in the Young People’s Summer Programme or hearing about the next round of youth collective recruitment, please get in touch via
