A visit to the Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising.

All that strategic thinking had seen everyone’s’ heads swell by at least 30%*. We needed some air and to put things into context, and where better than the Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising.

The group walked the time tunnel that showcased more than 100 years of branding and advertising in an amazing sensory overload.

They were then asked to pick out and analyse samples of work from each decade for a quick show-n-tell with the rest of the group where they discussed their findings. And what interesting findings they were.

Welcome!

The Louis Vuitton Young Arts Project presents the five partner youth groups (SLG’s Art Assassins, Young Tate, Hayward Gallery, Royal Academy of the Arts and Whitechapel Gallery) an opportunity to reach a far wider pool of young people who would otherwise might not discover the wonderful world of contemporary art. The aim? To get them as excited as you by opportunities that art can offer.

We hope to achieve this through the not so old-fashioned process of co-creation: young people working with older folk (practitioners) to understand the needs and requirements of the project and to develop interesting, engaging and most importantly, creative ways to solve them.

Still with us? Good, then let’s begin then…
