Aged 16-21? Love events?

Join our Youth Collective.

The Museum of Zoology and Cambridge Festival are looking for young people to join a pilot Youth Collective, running from September 2022 until June 2023.

You will work as part of a team to create and deliver fun, public-facing events for other young people and the wider public as part of Mill Road Winter Fair, the Cambridge Festival and the Museum of Zoology’s Late events.

You’ll have the opportunity to meet like-minded people, learn new skills and work within a team making decisions about the events we run for young people.
