From comfy chairs to clearer labels, teenagers have made a film telling museums what they think is important and how museums could work better for them.

Produced by Kids in Museums, Our Take was filmed, scripted, edited and presented by teenagers at Newport Museum and Art Gallery and Wrexham County Borough Museum and Archives. It’s a frank account of what teenagers want from a museum visit. It’s a teenage manifesto – accessible, fun to watch and for everyone. It makes positive suggestions on how things could be better for teenagers in museums. As one of the young filmmakers said, ‘It was a really good experience and it made me look at museums from a different perspective. I hope museums will see the film and want to do something about it.’

Our Take is part of the Changing Cultures initiative run by the Welsh Government which aims to find new ways of sharing museums, archives, libraries and historic places with young people and their families.  As one of the Changing Cultures projects, the Welsh Government has provided over £13,000 to Kids in Museums to give young people a role in driving change in museums in Wales.

John Griffiths, Minister for Culture and Sport, says: “I am very pleased that the Welsh Government is supporting this innovative project, as part of its Changing Cultures initiative.  It’s refreshing to see young people taking ownership and offering new ideas on how to make museums more relevant and interesting to children and young people.”

Three important things about Our Take * It’s for everyone who works in a museum – not just those in education and outreach. From the cafe to the car park, to cleaners, curators, volunteers or staff, everyone has a chance to listen and act. * You’ll never know what teenagers really want unless you ask them. * Nothing the teenagers suggest costs very much, if anything, to make happen. Museums can work with what they’ve got. They can do it.
Our Take DVD is distributed free to all museums which are taking part in the Museum Accreditation Scheme in Wales.
The film is in Welsh and English, and available as a DVD or on-line (http://kidsinmuseums.org.uk/our-take/) .

DATGANIAD I’R WASG
POBL IFANC YN DANGOS BETH MAEN NHW EI EISIAU MEWN AMGUEDDFA

O gadeiriau cyffyrddus i labeli mwy eglur, mae pobl ifanc wedi creu ffilm i ddweud wrth amgueddfeydd beth sy’n bwysig yn eu barn nhw a sut gallai amgueddfeydd weithio’n well iddyn nhw.

Cafodd y ffilm Barn Ni, a gynhyrchwyd gan Kids in Museums, ei ffilmio, ei hysgrifennu, ei golygu a’i chyflwyno gan bobl ifanc yn Amgueddfa ac Oriel Gelf Casnewydd ac Amgueddfa ac Archifdy Bwrdeistref Sirol Wrecsam. Mae’n adroddiad gonest o’r hyn mae pobl ifanc am ei weld wrth ymweld ag amgueddfa. Maniffesto gan bobl ifanc yw hwn – hawdd ei ddefnyddio, hwyl i’w wylio ac addas i bawb. Mae’n gwneud awgrymiadau cadarnhaol ynghylch sut gallai pethau fod yn well i bobl ifanc mewn amgueddfeydd. Fel y dywedodd un o wneuthurwyr y ffilm, ‘Roedd yn brofiad da iawn ac yn gwneud i fi edrych ar amgueddfeydd o safbwynt gwahanol. Rwy’n gobeithio y bydd amgueddfeydd yn gweld y ffilm ac eisiau gwneud rhywbeth.’

Mae Barn Ni yn rhan o’r fenter Newid Pethe sy’n cael ei rhedeg gan Lywodraeth Cymru gyda’r nod o ddod o hyd i ffyrdd newydd o rannu amgueddfeydd, archifdai, llyfrgelloedd a mannau hanesyddol gyda phobl ifanc a’u teuluoedd. Fel un o’r prosiectau Newid Pethe, mae Llywodraeth Cymru wedi rhoi dros £13,000 i Kids in Museums roi rôl i bobl ifanc o ran llywio newid mewn amgueddfeydd yng Nghymru.

Dywedodd John Griffiths, y Gweinidog Diwylliant a Chwaraeon: “Rwy’n falch iawn bod Llywodraeth Cymru yn cefnogi’r prosiect arloesol hwn fel rhan o’r fenter Newid Pethe. Mae’n galonogol gweld pobl ifanc yn cymryd yr awenau ac yn cynnig syniadau newydd ar sut i wneud amgueddfeydd yn fwy perthnasol a diddorol i blant a phobl ifanc.”
Tri peth pwysig am Barn Ni – * Mae’n bwysig i bawb sy’n gweithio mewn amgueddfa – nid dim ond y rheini mewn addysg a gwaith maes. O’r caffi i’r maes parcio, y glanhawyr, y curadiaid, y gwirfoddolwyr neu’r staff, mae cyfle i bawb wrando a gweithredu. * Dydych chi byth yn gwybod beth mae pobl ifanc ei eisiau mewn gwirionedd nes i chi ofyn iddyn nhw. * Bach yw’r pris, os oes pris o gwbl, i roi’r awgrymiadau hyn ar waith. Gall amgueddfeydd weithio gyda’r hyn sydd ganddyn nhw. Cam bach yw llwyddiant.

Mae DVD Barn Ni yn cael ei ddosbarthu am ddim i bob amgueddfa sy’n cymryd rhan yn y Cynllun Achredu Amgueddfeydd yng Nghymru.

Mae’r ffilm yn Gymraeg a Saesneg, ac mae ar gael fel DVD neu ar-lein (http://kidsinmuseums.org.uk/barn-ni) .
