Instagram Takeover Day

Today is our Instagram Takeover Day! We are handing our Instagram profile over to our Young Curators for the whole day.

Kids in Museums

Founded in 2003, Takeover Days were started by Kids in Museums, an Arts Council organisation to make museums easier to reach.

Three of our Young Curators will be capturing our museum via photography and film, posting directly to Instagram. Meave, Ashleigh and Jago live locally and work with the museum throughout the year as volunteers on their own creative projects.

It is a unique opportunity to see our collection through fresh eyes and to hand over the creative licence for a day.
