Since April 2009, Site has extended its education work with young people to include media and journalism assignments to help further contextualise its exhibitions programme and involve young people in contemporary art dialogue. This has involved young people in researching and interviewing exhibiting artists for the gallery website and encouraging and collecting comments from audience members at private views and related events. This media strand of Site’s education programme has since been incorporated into the Site Young Apprentice Scheme [SYAS] during an intense two week work placement.
Artist and audience interviewers:
