Description

About the Day

Do you want to raise the aspirations of young people in your museum? Then come along to a Planning and Sharing event for Takeover Day 2017 – the day when young people and children nationwide are given powerful, meaningful, decision-making roles within museums, galleries, libraries, archives, arts organisations and heritage sites.


Who should attend?

Planning and Sharing events are free and open to staff and volunteers based at museums, galleries, archives or heritage sites. The events are for organisations running their first Takeover Day or even their fifth.


What will you learn?

What you'll gain:

  • Ideas that put young people at the heart of your work

  • Inspiration from venues who took part last year

  • Planning time and guidance for your Takeover Day

  • Networking with partners you can work with on Takeover Day


How does this session relate to Arts Council England’s Accreditation Standard?

This day supports the following areas of the Accreditation Standard:

  • 3.1.3:devise plans to broaden its range of users

  • 3.3.3:provide effective and stimulating learning and discovery experiences focused on the collections


Can’t make it to Brunel's SS Great Britain?

We will be running another Planning and Sharing event in Torquay in September. Details are yet to be confirmed. Please get in touch if you wish to know more as soon as the news is released by contacting: Takeoverday@kidsinmuseums.org.uk.

Session Leaders:

Kids in Museums is an independent charity dedicated to making museums open and welcoming to all families, children and young people, in particular those who haven’t visited before. With a dedicated Board of Trustees and an exciting range of events, partnerships and initiatives, Kids in Museums gives families visiting museums and galleries across Britain a dynamic and powerful voice. The Kids in Museums Manifesto, Takeover Day and the Family Friendly Museum Award have been incredibly successful ways of encouraging and guiding museums and galleries across the country to make family visits engaging and enjoyable for all ages.
