This year will be held on Friday 3 August. The day is a brilliant opportunity for museums, heritage sites, galleries, archives and libraries across the UK to collaborate with young people.
In 2017, almost 70 museum Twitter handles were taken over by more than 300 young people. Around 300,000 people saw posts by the fantastic teenage tweeters and #takeoverday was trending across the UK.
Teen Twitter Takeover provides an opportunity for young people to communicate and work with their peers across the country, whilst gaining valuable experience with museums and their collections. In addition, it helps organisations to better understand their younger audiences and can act as a springboard for working with children and young people again for Takeover Day in November.
Sign up using the quick and easy registration form and Kids in Museums will send you stickers for your young tweeters and a bespoke twibbon for your Twitter account. They’ll also make sure you don’t miss out on the action on 3 August.
Join Kids in Museums to make #takeoverday the No. 1 hashtag on 3 August 2018.
