Kids rule the ICA the last Saturday of every month, when the museum fills up with fun, creative, and even zany activities for kids and adults to do together.
Inspired by the stories told in When Home Won’t Let You Stay: Migration through Contemporary Art, we invite people of all ages to connect with themselves and one another through making and creating.
