Behind the Scenes and Screens at Rich Mix

Friday 17 November
Mezzanine Gallery

In a nutshell

As part of National ‘Kids in Museums day’, Tower Hamlets kids takeover Rich Mix.

Go on...

Takeover Day is a national celebration of children and young people’s contributions to museums, galleries, arts organisations, archives and heritage sites. It’s a day on which they are given meaningful roles, working alongside staff and volunteers to participate in the life of the arts organization.

Find us on this map alongside all the other Kids in Museums events in London.

What to Expect

The day involves pupils in ‘taking over’ at Rich Mix during the IntoFilm festival screening on 17 November ripping tickets, ushering and serving popcorn. They'll be finding out what happens in the mysterious projection booth, behind the screens at a cinema and write their own creative responses to the film.

While they’re here we’ll also ask them what they think about Rich Mix from a Kids-Eye view whilst taking a behind-the-scenes tour.

The day provides opportunities for developing student leadership skills and industry knowledge.

Who's Involved

What people are saying

“Takeover Day not only gives young people the opportunity to experience and excel at something they might not have thought was for them, but declares that arts organisations are for everyone, of every age”
