The GoMA Youth Group (GYG) (2021/22) was a collective of young people aged 16-24 who started meeting at GoMA in November 2021. GYG’S mission is to create spaces for young people in Glasgow to connect through art.Their time together began with setting goals, meeting curators and learning about GoMA, museums and the sector. By the new year, they were ready and delivered their first events. In July 2022, they hosted the GYG Festival, a 10 day programme of events and workshops for young people in Glasgow – including rug tufting, pizza making, sign painting, a queer tour of GoMA, film screening & talks.
TOGETHER is a collection of outcomes produced collaboratively by attendees of those events and members of the GYG in response to the artworks at GoMA. This exhibition was a testament to the process being just as important as the final work.
The GoMA Youth Group presented TOGETHER is a celebration of young people in Glasgow connecting, sharing and creating together.
GoMA Youth Group (2021/22) members: Eden Bø Dower, Isabella Wagner, Nora Aubry, Rana Noor Mohamed, Faith Muyaba, Alyx Furniss and Euan Gallacher.
The GoMA Youth Group is funded by the Scottish Government’s Youth Arts Fund through Creative Scotland with support from Youth Music Initiative and Time to Shine.
