We are the GoMA Youth Group for 2020-2021! We’re a cool gang of 16-25-year-olds with a variety of different skills and experiences in art, all passionate about making, curating, and talking on the arts (we like it a lot).
Following the success of our first GoMA Youth Group (GYG), we’d like to invite all young people aged 16-25 to take part in our 2020/21 programme. We are looking for… Read more GoMA Youth Group 2020/2021 →

We’ve been pretty busy over at the GoMA Youth Group. We had our first workshop on Sunday the 28th March exploring Hal Fischer’s ‘Gay Semiotics’ through zine-making. We’ve also been reflecting on some important recent events – LGBTQ+ History Month and International Women’s Month. These events give us all some time and space to think about our role either within these communities or as allies. The GoMA is celebrating its 25th anniversary and has been reflecting on its history of LGBTQ+ programming since the museum opened in 1996.

Like all museums and galleries across the world our plans for 2021 are ever changing and responding to the extraordinary times that we are currently living in. But one thing that hasn’t changed is that GoMA will be 25 this year and that marks a moment in the history of the organisation that we felt we couldn’t miss, even though we may not be able to programme exhibitions and events or gather to celebrate in the way that we would have loved to for this year.
Well that’s another year flown by with barely a moment to stop! As ever a rollercoaster with a busy public programme plus people moving on to new exciting posts and… Read more Festive Greetings →
Over recent weeks we have received a number of enquiries regarding structural racism and Black Lives Matter. We have responded to these individually and now would like to share that response even more publicly and transparently.
