Teen Tours is a public speaking programme at The Photographers' Gallery for young people aged 13-19. Participants are mentored through a six-week process designed to build confidence, develop critical thinking and improve public speaking skills, culminating in the delivery of a 20 minute public tour of a current exhibition to the general public. I managed the programme from 2014-2018, overseeing outreach and facilitating the sessions. I also managed the relationship between partner organisations Wallace Collection and Horniman Museum, who I trained to deliver Teen Tours as part of the expansion of the project between 2017-2020, funded by Outset and Mishcon de Reya. Watch a short film about Teen Tours here.
