Apollo Project is the Gallery’s dedicated programme for young people, created by young people. Taking inspiration from the national collection, a team of young people co-curate this new exhibition to bring fresh relevance to the historic artworks of Russborough House.

Giving ownership and a voice to a new diverse, under-represented audience who may feel that the Gallery is inaccessible to it, collaboration with young people is at the core of Apollo Project. In a new partnership between the Gallery and Apollo Project Young Curators, this exhibition is created by a dynamic team of young people with the support of Gallery teams. 

The Apollo Fellowship is made possible through the generous support of the Apollo Foundation.
