Art, children and museums – how and why?

Activity: Talk or presentationLecture and oral contribution


At the National Gallery of Denmark, we strive to enable art and creativity to play an active part in the everyday lives of all children and young people. How do we put this mindset into practice when it comes to school programs, exhibitions for children, and our youth programs? This presentation will focus on user involvement, active participation, and the art of allowing scope and space for wonder and inquisitiveness. Marianne Grymer Bargeman, Head of the Children & Youth Department at SMK, The National Gallery of Denmark and winner of the Children of Museum Award 2014.
