A Young Curators program ran alongside the Juneau Projects commission. The six Young Curators; Sam De Freitas, Lucy Bowley, Lewis Robbins, Hannah Jean Moulds, Kathryn Spence and Charley Rob, came together as the Common Ground collective.
With the guidance and support of Invisible Dust and local artist Hayley McPhun, Common Ground were tasked with curating a complementary exhibition, which would be on show in the run up to the opening of the Juneau Projects installation. Their trail featured six artists in four locations along Scunthorpe’s High Street from Central Library to Frodingham Church. The artists featured; Cameron Lings, Laura Alice Thompson, Melody Clark, Anneli Frampton, Gwen Siôn and Garry Barker, were all incredibly generous with their time and support for the project. Though the trail has now finished, information about the artists, Young Curators and trail route can still be viewed on the Common Ground website: www.commongroundlincs.wixsite.com/website
The Young Curators took part in one of the wax modelling workshops with Juneau Projects. Their finished bronze birds are now part of the installation at North Lincolnshire Museum. Some of the Young Curators visited the Museum during the install. As well as this being their first opportunity to see their finished bronze birds, they also got to meet Ben and Phil from Juneau Projects and watch the installation coming together.
