Takeover with Arts Award

Takeover with Arts Award

Young people takeover Berkshire

100% of host organisations we worked with said Takeover Day was a valuable experience for their team.

Over three years, Creative Junction brokered over 60 arts and cultural placements for young people as part of this pioneering national initiative that breaks down barriers and encourages active involvement in our communities.

Formally Takeover Day, Takeover Challenge is a national initiative from the Children’s Commissioner for England, championing Children and Young People. The day gives children and young people the chance to work with adults for the day. Children and young people benefit from the opportunity to experience the world of work and make their voices heard, while adults and organisations gain a fresh perspective on what they do.

Through the Berkshire Cultural Network and the investment of the Berkshire Local Authorities and Artswork, the south east Bridge, we provided guidance, resources and support to help over 20 arts and cultural host organisations to get the most out of the day.

We continue to support arts, cultural and heritage organisations across the sub region with their Takeover Day planning, as a member of the Artswork Arts Award Leadership Network and in partnership with Kids in Museums.

Our work results in children and young people achieving Arts Award Bronze, Discover & Explore and as part of their Takeover Day placements.
