Young People Summer Takeover Workshop:
A Chic Date at the Museum

This event is for participants ages sixteen to twenty-four. Each participant must join with a companion.

Time seemed to have slowed, eavesdropping on our whispers, as we walked into the museum—through its crowds and between its silent walls.

Dates don’t always have to be flashy. Let’s have a low-key but memorable date at M+! In this workshop, artist Sinman Yeung explores ways to improve relationships between people through a unique date. Guided by Yeung and members of M+ Young Collective, you and your companion will participate in an orienteering game to discover unexpected spaces and ways to enjoy a date at the museum. At the end of the game, you will create a ‘trail map’ on a piece of glass to record the intimate time spent together.

About M+ Young Collective

About Young People Summer Takeover: Retrograde

The Young People Summer Takeover programme features a series of creative events over the course of two weeks in August. Inspired by our past M+ Summer Camps, the programme continues to encourage young people to think outside the box, discover new perspectives on everyday life, and flex their creativity when responding to challenges.

The theme of this year’s Summer Takeover is ‘Retrograde’. The programme inspires participants to re-examine preconceived thinking and explore their paths in various paces, trajectories, and directions. ‘Retrograde’ references the apparent backwards motion of a plane. It is also a metaphor that prompts young people to reassess their journeys of self-discovery. By navigating the world from fresh perspectives, they can respond to today’s ever-changing environment in different ways when confronted with confusion and uncertainty.
