Masha Turchinsky, Metropolitan Museum of Art (US)

Museums present endless opportunities for kids to make connections and stretch their imaginations. Cultural institutions often create digital resources for kids based on what they feel they should know or learn, rather than letting the audience guide the process. Masha will present #MetKids, the new feature and app made for, with, and by real kids to explore art and the museum. She’ll share insights about her team’s R&D and content creation processes, what children said they really think and what to know about art, and how the Met learned and grew when they listened to the questions kids were bold enough to ask.
