Last year I voluntarily Project Managed ‘Young Explainers’ – an exciting and engaging project run by Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery in partnership with the National Gallery, which aimed to engage a broad audience with PCMAG and in particular the exhibition ‘In Pursuit of Art: Charles Eastlake’s Journey from Plymouth to the National Gallery’. A few of the team – Vicky Smith, Francesca Didymus, Sarah Stagg and I – put an application together to the British Museum Marsh Trust Awards, and we were delighted to receive an award as joint regional winners for the South West – horray! We were invited to the British Museum on Monday to receive our certificates, and a great time was had by all. The four of us wish to thank Sara Norrish, Education Officer at PCMAG, for her continuous support, she always managed to strike that fine balance of guiding us while letting us make the decisions! We wanted also to thank Susanna Avery-Quash, Research Curator in the History of Collecting at the National Gallery, for providing us with the unique opportunity to work with the National Gallery and for always being so supportive and enthusiastic. We’d also like to thank all the other Young Explainers who were invaluable to the project. How lucky I am to have worked with such a wonderful bunch!
