Supporting the diversity of children

Together with NPOs and other groups whose work involves supporting children, this program is designed to respect the diversity of children and nurture their values. The experience of adults and children appreciating treasured museum items together on an equal footing, and freely discussing artworks will aid the personal growth of participants, as they recognize their differences from others and learn to respect their own individuality. “Art Communicators,” curators and university professors will accompany children and their parents or guardians for the program, making first-time museum-goers feel right at home.
Relax and enjoy the world of museums!
