Kids in Museums: New 2015 Workshops Announced

Kids in Museums is an independent charity dedicated to making museums open and welcoming to all families, in particular those who haven’t visited before. Created over a decade ago, Kids in Museums provides different services and projects throughout the year to encourage museums to become more family focussed, including the hugely successful ‘Take Over Day’, the production of useful fact sheets and workshops for museum teams.

The charity has just announced its initial schedule of workshops for 2015 which will equip museum staff, volunteers and trustees with useful skills across a range of family friendly topics. These workshops would ideal for people working in Family Learning, Education, Visitor Services, Marketing, Interpretation, Volunteer Management, Audience Development, Youth and Community, Outreach, Public Engagement and Programming, Creative Programming and Digital Engagement.
