The Youth Panel is a group of young people with enthusiasm for museums. They help to provide new and fresh perspectives whilst gaining work experience through the programming of exhibitions such as this one.
In a world that’s increasingly fast-paced, Making Sense asks you to slow down, using the 5 senses to find new feelings from new viewpoints. Taking pictures with mobile phone cameras to capture smaller details in the museum’s collection, this exhibition aims to promote everyday mindfulness, bringing focus to the photographer and the viewer. The Youth Panel hopes visitors will be able to find relaxation by using new technology to ground themselves within the museum and elsewhere.
