Where we are… is a new UK-wide national programme for young people aged 16–24 that co-designs and co-delivers meaningful local projects in arts and culture. Supported by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation and covering costs for all involved, the programme aims to engage young people who are under-served in the museum sector.
The British Museum is looking for organisations that want to work in a truly collaborative way with young people to create these co-designed projects. These projects will be unique to their locality, each responding to a local community need identified by the young people. They are delivered through a partnership between the British Museum, a local cultural organisation, a third sector organisation and young people. By working in partnership with local charities and cultural spaces, we aim to connect with young people who are under-served by the cultural sector.
