IVE developed the Creative Families Award with Dr Abigail Hackett as a resource for parents, carers and museum practitioners to assist in identifying, recognising, valuing and celebrating the arts and creative experiences of very young children in museums. In this report, we review the impact of the pilot programme.
Some of the key findings from Creative Families Award End of Pilot Report include:
- The award is very useful for reaching an audience that is not currently engaging with the participating museums
- Parents and carers responded very favourably to the award and the impact it had on the children participating
- It is hard to predict which activities aimed at very young children will hold interest so planning needs to include multiple options to see which elements will most engage children
- It is necessary to consider a much greater emphasis on the doing of arts (the process) rather than the end product
