Recommended for ages 8–14

What does the video game Fortnite have in common with Shakespeare? Both can teach us about how words and phrases are created and popularized. Use language to invent fabulous treasures, describe fortifications, and plan daring heists. Led by game designer and documentary film editor Mike Jorgensen.

Hammer Kids is made possible through the generosity of the Anthony and Jeanne Pritzker Family Foundation. Hammer Kids also receives support from friends of the Hammer Museum's Kids Art Museum Project (K.A.M.P.), an annual family fundraiser. Additional funding is provided by The Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation, GRoW @ Annenberg, and The Winnick Family Foundation.

All public programs are free and made possible by a major gift from an anonymous donor. Generous support is also provided by Susan Bay Nimoy and Leonard Nimoy, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, the Elizabeth Bixby Janeway Foundation, The Samuel Goldwyn Foundation, an anonymous donor, and all Hammer members.
Readings are supported by GRoW @ Annenberg.
Digital presentation of Hammer public programs is made possible by The Billy and Audrey L. Wilder Foundation.
Hammer public programs are presented online in partnership with the #KeepThePromise campaign—a movement promoting social justice and human rights through the arts.
