For Kids in Museums Takeover Day on 22 November 2019, we’ll be opening our doors to a group of young people (up to 21 years old) to come and "take over" The Lightbox for one day only.

Whether you want to take control of our social media channels, design an exhibition or plan a workshop – or even hunt down some new exciting products to sell in our Shop, we want you to come and give it a go!

Applications to take part in our Takeover Day will open on 2 September and close on 30 September 2019. We want to hear about your most interesting and ambitious takeover plans. We have space for up to 6 young people who will be selected to come along to The Lightbox for the whole day on 22 November and really take over.

This is an amazing opportunity to get some work experience in a real art gallery and museum. You will get to see how The Lightbox works behind-the-scenes and how different departments keep the building, exhibitions and activities running.

If you are under 18 you must have prior permission from your school and your parents to take part in our Takeover Day. You will be out of school all day so you must have agreed this with your school beforehand.

No matter your age, you must be able to commit to a full day at The Lightbox on Fri 22 November, 10.00am - 4.00pm.
