Kinderbiënnale 2021

Wednesday 2 June 2021 to Sunday 9 January 2022

Doing, discovering, making and looking

The Netherlands’ first ever Children’s Biennale, a large interactive art exhibition made for and by kids, takes place at the Groninger Museum from 24 April through 31 October 2021.


Every artwork in the Children’s Biennale will invite interaction, participation and creation. Through doing, discovering, making and looking, visitors will actively engage with art in a variety of ways.

From start to finish

In the run-up to the exhibition, the children helped to write information signs for the artworks, plan the marketing, and selected merchandise for the museum shop. They witnessed the technical construction of the exhibition, helped to determine its layout, and learned how to be a tour guide. Perhaps best of all, they visited participating artists’ studios and, where possible, helped them to produce works for the show.

Creating content

Online reporting is an important aspect of the ambassadors’ experience and participation. They will create content about the show and share it with the world on the Biennale website. Through this innovative educational approach, the Groninger Museum aims to give a young audience valuable new experiences and to learn from young people at the same time.

In partnership with

The Children’s Biennale is being organised in partnership with primary schools, regional organisations and the National Gallery Singapore.
