The youth activity program at the Alaska State Library, Archives, and Museum provides young people with opportunities to work with professional artists to learn artistic techniques and engage with art, history, and the collections of the Library, Archives, and Museum. These activities are sponsored by the Friends of the Alaska State Library, Archives, and Museum and are partially funded by the citizens of the City and Borough of Juneau through sales tax revenues.
Join Tanna Peters to create a collaborative digital exhibit to reflect on the ways that we reacted and adapted to the challenges of 2020 personally and as a community. Participants will learn about the process of creating a museum exhibit, including developing an exhibit concept, selecting objects, and designing and writing labels to tell a compelling story. The materials for the workshop will be provided but participants will provide images of the objects that mean something to them.
Participants will need to be able to access a Zoom meeting and a digital camera. Space is limited – request a spot by filling out the participation request form. This program is partially funded by the citizens of the City and Borough of Juneau through sales tax revenues and is open to Juneau youth only.
Tanna Peters has worked in the design industry for over 15 years and has a background in theatrical scenic design and museum exhibits. She was a key part of the team that created the Museum’s new exhibits that opened in the Father Andrew P. Kashevaroff State Library, Archives, and Museum in 2016.
The Friends of the Alaska State Library, Archives, and Museum support youth in need by providing bus tokens for children and their parents who require transportation assistance. If your family would benefit from this, please contact the program coordinator.
