Reach Out: Engaging Younger Audiences with Museums

Event information

Date: 6 December

Price: From £30

Organiser: Museums Association

Venue: Online

Engaging young audiences is no easy task for museums, but the rise of participatory practice has led many museums to build strong relationships with youth communities, particularly those from marginalised backgrounds, and ensure their voices are accurately represented in institutions.

This event offers practical advice and case studies that demonstrate how museums can build equitable and sustainable relationships with underserved audiences such as teenagers and young adults, which centre their voices and wellbeing.
