Our 6 Young Curators
What are the Young Curators?
Moseley Road Baths are working with six fantastic early-career creatives, our Young Curators, to make an exciting new digital creation inspired by Moseley Road Baths. Over the course of the six month programme, our Young Curators will choose an audience, conceptualise an idea, engage with the space and its community, explore the digital, commission artists, and ultimately, curate a final product. This could be a film, podcast, video game, digital immersive experience… Keep an eye on our socials to see what happens!
What is its aim?
- To work with young people to create something exciting and innovative in connection with the baths
- To aid the development of young people in the creative arts sector so they have the tools to pursue connected careers if they want to
- To use digital technologies to tell stories that engage the Balsall Heath community
