At Universcience, the drive to create educational and playful museum spaces centered around children is an international affair. In 2018, Universcience launched the editorial line “Young and curious,” a series of temporary and touring exhibitions centered around children. Drawing upon the success of the Cité des enfants, the goal of this series was to create new environments for children to mix exploration with education – and to share this worldwide.
Next month, Universcience will be hosting an event for museum and children professionals. An international symposium, “What role does culture play in child development?”, will take place on 1 and 2 February 2024.
The cultural offer for children evolves rapidly, as does our society. This Symposium is an opportunity for professionals in the industry to put their heads together to find new ways of supporting the development of children aged 2 to 10, so that they can flourish and meet the challenges ahead.
The first day of the symposium will look at children from various perspectives and ask how they fit into the museums and science centres of the future. Then, the second day of the conference invites attendees to question the worldviews they pass on to children through the stories they tell.
