Behind the Scenes of the World Museum
Mia, Caitlin and Madison were the guests of their Business Mentor, Melanie Lewis. Melanie is the Commercial Director of World Museums Liverpool.
The girls were given a tour and met a variety of staff from Emily in catering to Tracey in marketing. In the Design Department they met with Simon and Mark who showed them how they prepared the ‘Terracotta Warriors Exhibition’ from mood boards to posters then to 3D graphics representing the final exhibit.
The girls were very fortunate to be taken in to the actual ‘Terracotta Warriors Exhibition’ where they saw the designs in reality and were privileged to speak with the various members of staff overseeing the exhibition.
The morning concluded at the Walker Art Gallery when Pauline, one of the Head Art Curators, shared her career journey and the message that came across strongly to the students from the many people they met was ‘it’s ok not to know what you want to be in the future but important to keep a breadth of subjects so that you don’t narrow down your career options!’.
