NA, NA, Nationwide, United Kingdom

Friday, August 12, 2016 - 09:30 to 17:30

On Friday 12th August 2016, cultural and heritage organisations across the UK will hand their twitter feeds over to teenagers for Teen Twitter Takeover.

Join in with this successful event and empower teenagers. Get tips from Kids in Museums Twitter factsheet and Tweetsheet to engage groups for wider projects on the official Takeover Day, Friday 18th November 2016.

Let us know your young people will be tweeting by registering your event here. We'll then join in the conversation.

This project helps museums to put young people’s voices at the heart of the museum, demonstrating trust.

The best thing about today and when we have ‘takenover’ before is knowing that we are being trusted by the museum. ‘Cos I know the museum staff are happy that I will do a good job it gives me confidence to do things which I am nervous or scared about. Then when I do the thing, I realise I am quite good at it and the museum is right to trust me.
Quote from teen tweeter at Ancient House Museum of Thetford Life

It's great fun, a brilliant profile-raising activity and will help organisations understand their young visitors better, enabling staff with different roles to work together.
