Do you want to do something interesting with your free time, meet new people with similar interests, see behind the scenes at the William Morris Gallery and learn new skills to add to your CV, UCAS or college applications? If you are aged between 16 - 22 and would like to design and run exhibitions and events for other people the same age at the Gallery then you might want to join the Young Curators Group.

Are you aged between 16 - 22? Every summer the Gallery runs a free week long workshop, offering young people the chance to develop work for exhibition at the Gallery. Under the guidance of a professional artist you will learn new skills, meet new people and have a really memorable experience. Further details will be published here soon.

Group tours

Youth and community groups from Waltham Forest can book a free Waltham Forest Welcome when they visit as a group. The Waltham Forest Welcome is available by appointment subject to staff availability, please contact us at least two weeks in advance. The tour lasts for 30 minutes and includes a personal welcome from the Activities and Events Officer, a brief introduction to the Gallery and facilities as well as information about the Young People’s Programme. Together we look at and discuss an object from the collection to practice our critical thinking skills after which the group is ready to explore the Gallery by themselves. Tours can be tailored to the needs of individual groups.

To book a tour, register your interest in any of these opportunities or for more information please contact Rebecca Jacobs, Activities and Events Officer 0208 496 1465
