What is it about?
Sharna will talk about how the worlds of arts institutions and children can come together, using her work on the digital art exhibition, Playground, as a case study.
Children going to galleries and museums is a great idea but sometimes venues aren’t set up to be welcoming to those audiences. Sometimes, the expectations of young people, their parents and teachers, aren’t necessarily realistic. In this session you’ll explore how to get to a position of relaxed mutual respect
What will I gain?
1) Insight into how to work with school groups
2) An understanding of how to have effective residencies with young people
3) Tools for how and where to talk about your organisation in order to engage young people
Who is it for?
People who work with (or want to work with) young people, schools and children.
