Barn Ni - Our TakeWe were proud to launch Our Take Barn Ni in 2013 – a film produced, presented, scripted and edited by teenagers at Newport and Wrexham museums. 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.

The film is in Welsh and English. It‘s part of the Changing Cultures  initiative run by the Welsh Government – finding new ways of sharing museums, archives, libraries and historic places with young people and their families.

Three important things to remember when you watch the film –

  •  It’s for everyone who works in a museum – in the cafe, the car park, or as a cleaner, curator, volunteer or staff
  • You’ll never know what teenagers really want unless you ask them
  • Nothing suggested costs very much, if anything, to make happen. Museums can work with what they’ve got. They can do it.

Kids in Museums’ project assistant Alice Hockey wrote an account of the filming days in Wales. Click here to find out how it went.

 

If you’ve enjoyed Our Take Barn Ni, why not find out about our other film projects, How I See It, Teen Take and  I Can’t See It!   – a Kids in Museums production also filmed, scripted, edited and produced by teenagers.  Eight teenagers aged 13-16  – Hamish, Misha, Nav, Philippa, David, Harry, Libby and Claude – reveal what a museum visit does – or doesn’t do – for them. I Can’t See It! was filmed at the Herbert Museum and Art Gallery and the Coventry Transport Museum with Herbert Media.
