Kids in Museums Teen Twitter Takeover

Friday 3rd August 2018

On Friday 3rd August 2018, cultural and heritage organisations across the UK will be handing over their Twitter feeds to young people for our Teen Twitter Takeover. Last year’s event saw 300 young people taking over almost 70 museum handles, producing tweets which were seen by 300,000 people.

Our Teen Twitter Takeover helps to give teenagers across the country a platform to share their views and experiences, which in turn helps museums and heritage sites to better understand the voices of young people. Whether you are a museum, heritage site, archive, library or science or art centre, we would love your help in creating a conversation with the next generation.
