This factsheet explains how cultural institutions such as museums, galleries and heritage sites can locate and attract young people to take part in Kids in Museums Takeover Day. It is useful in general for cultural organisations who want to know where to find young people ahead of a special event.
If your museum already works with a local school, talk to the contact teacher. A member of staff or volunteer may have personal links with a local school or group through their children, grandchildren or being a governor. Find out which schools are doing Artsmark and Arts Award. To find your local schools use the Department for Education website tool.
