The theme of Kids in Museums Takeover Day in 2023 is Let’s Play!
Play helps children to learn, engage, get creative, support their own wellbeing, and have fun. We asked children to select a work in Jerwood Collection and explain why they feel it links to the theme of play.
Supported by Arts Council England, Kids in Museums has held an annual digital takeover since 2014 to help empower young people.
