Seven art institutions collaborate on a shared art app for children families and youth

With the support of Sparebankstiftelsen, seven art institutions have joined forces to develop a joint app for mobile units customized for youth and families with children. The National Museum, the Munch Museum, Lillehammer Kunstmuseum, Henie Onstad Art Centre, Drammen Museum, Haugar Kunstmuseum and Astrup Fearnley Museet will this autumn launch the new app named Kunstporten.

Through new technology and cooperation with the target group, the art institutions want to make art accessible in a new way. One of the aims of the app is that it should convey the art and contribute to activities and participation. It will focus on dialogue-based dissemination and use mobile digital tools to facilitate conversations, games and activities that the public can do in conjunction with the visit of the exhibitions. Families should be able to do something together. The app’s content will be developed in cooperation with representatives of the target groups. Our assumption is that art is best appreciated through experience and participation.

Hilde Fauskerud, museum educator and webmaster at Lillehammer Art Museum and Ida Sannes Hansen, communication coordinator at the Astrup Fearnley Museum, will present the work of Kunstporten and speak of how it will contribute to conversations, games and activities in a new way.
