Get exclusive preview visits to Doors Open Days buildings & share your must-see itinerary in a series of dedicated guides & videos, designed & created by you! (with some help from the professionals)

In 2018 Doors Open Days was awarded a grant from the Year of Young People National Lottery Fund to enable its Young Advisory Panel (YAP) to create tailor-made guides for its events across Scotland. The idea is for the guides to highlight Doors Open Days events the YAP think will appeal to their peers aged 18-25.

Ideally we will recruit a YAP member from each of the following regions: Aberdeen, Inverness, Stirling, Pitlochry, Glasgow & Edinburgh. The project will run from February to September and members will be paid a fee.

Designed by our original Year of Young People 2018 YAP members, the project aims to give young people the opportunity to plan and realise a project from start to finish, giving them as much autonomy as possible. Scheduled into the suggested timeline are meetings with experts in heritage, arts, design and marketing fields, giving the YAP members opportunities to meet with and learn from professionals, and to develop their skillsets. YAP members will also get to meet different regional Doors Open Days coordinators and make ‘preview’ visits to buildings they might include in their final guides. 

For more information about the project, who we are looking for, and how to apply- take a look at this information document.

Apply to take part by filling out this Google Form, deadline 24th February.
