Our Current Projects

Takeover Birmingham

Takeover Birmingham is a participatory pilot project giving 200 young people the opportunity to have meaningful experiences in arts, culture and heritage, leading to greater buy-in to culture as part of their lives.

They will all become members of a Takeover Birmingham Club set up by 20 participating arts organisation for the duration of the pilot.

The Club will plan for and engage in taking on real-life roles within the arts organisation as part of a series of experiences during the 2016-2017 academic year.

Those participating in the Club will be aged 11-14 and not have had significant previous engagement with the arts.

We are working with a range of organisations to set-up the 20 Takeover Birmingham Clubs including the likes of Birmingham Repertory Theatre, Flatpack Film Festival, and Northfield Arts Forum.

Takeover Birmingham is a Cultural Citizens pilot project supported with funding from Arts Council England.

Takeover Day

Takeover Day is a celebration of children and young people’s contribution to museums, galleries and historic homes. It’s a day on which they are given meaningful roles, working alongside staff and volunteers to participate in the life of the museum. See how to take part here.

Your Museum Cafe

On today’s menu…

Lots of families have told us that a visit to the café is an important part of their museum experience.  They want to feel welcome in the whole museum, the café included.  The importance of extending family friendly values to the café even features as a point on the Kids in Museums Manifesto

In response Kids in Museums started cooking something up: the Your Museum Café project, working with families, museums and galleries to produce guidelines for family friendly museum cafés that meet everyone’s needs – families, museums and other venues. Read more…
