Takeover Day is a national celebration of children and young people’s contributions to museums, galleries, arts organisations, archives and heritage sites as part of Kids in Museums day. As part of our Pic ‘n’ Mix programme, one participating school will be involved. It’s a day on which school children are given meaningful roles at Rich Mix, working alongside staff to participate in the life of the arts organisation.
After watching a film in our screens, the group will go behind the scenes at Rich Mix. They’ll be finding out what happens in the mysterious projection booth, behind the screens at the cinema and they will write their own creative critique to the film.
The day provides opportunities for developing student leadership skills and industry knowledge.
