The AGO Youth Receptiveness Assessment Initiative

We're in residence at the Art Gallery of Ontario this winter, December - February 2015. For our residency we're taking our new research wing, Methods for Mammals, out for a spin and running The AGO Youth Receptiveness Assessment Initiative, an assessment of the gallery's potential permeability to young people according the the principles we've develop in our Mammalian Succession Model for Youth Engagement. We're going to be meeting and interviewing 40 staff members, canvassing and surveying the surrounding neighborhood for nearby youth, testing out some art projects, holding a panel about program evaluation, a workshop to share the basics of Qualitative Comparative Analysis and producing a report summing up our findings and offering recommendations. We'll soon have more details about the public component of the residency, so stay tuned.

We'll have an active office at the AGO as of December, so drop by then, or if you want more information, get in touch with us at anytime:
