Teen focus group

Screen Shot 2015-04-15 at 4.34.42 PMStudents are invited to join in a casual and fun, analytical gallery discussion on a specific work of art and then we’ll do a feedback forum exploring questions like: What is it like to be a teen in the PMA? What’s great? What’s not so great? Do you come visit without your class or family? Why or Why not? Focus groups will last one hour and be held at the PMA. We encourage students to bring their friends. Plus…we’ll provide snacks.

Please share this opportunity with your students and if they grant permission, reply to me with their names and emails or phone. I will follow up with them directly regarding dates of the focus group (the first one is during April vacation week). We’re looking for students aged 14-18 years old. An interest in museums and art is preferable but not necessary.

Why should they help us? We want the PMA to be a place where teens can hang out, see art they love (and see art they don’t love), and be part of the growing community at the museum. We want to better understand teen audiences and teens are the only ones that can help us with that.
