Children in charge

What does it mean to have “children in charge”?

For the Water drop cultural project, it means directly involving children in the creation of cultural programming in the partner museums by inviting children to have a say and voice their opinion. To do this we have developed the Young Curators initiative, which invites Nordic children aged 8-15 to co-curate and develop series of exhibitions and festivals. Their task is to take charge in a new way of thinking about contemporary social challenges like environmentalism, gender equality and diversity in connection with Nordic classic literature.
