The transition from primary to secondary education is the first step towards adulthood, filled with hopes and anxieties, worries and aspiration. This display of Rachel Molina’s work, a collection of intimate photographic portraits and testimonies neither sentimental nor judgmental, gives a unique voice to these children who are often Seen But Not Heard.
Sunday 30 July – Sunday 3 September
10.30 - 17.00 
Visit the V&A with your family for a fun, creative day out during the summer holidays. Transform the John Madejski Garden with new structures and surfaces, explore architectural patterns and textures or create your own sensory clay object inspired by the new Sackler courtyard.
Events run throughout July and August, Ages 3+.
