All parents with their children are welcome to join us each Sunday at 1:30 PM. All workshops take one hour and consist of two parts. First, we visit the up-to-date exhibition together and we talk about the works presented there. During the second part of the workshop we take up manual activities that enable everybody to creatively use their awaken sensitivity and imagination.

4.9.2016 IN NEON LIGHTS

The first workshop after the holidays will be different than usually. This weekend, Wrocław Contemporary Museum is celebrating its fifth birthday. For this reason, during the Sunday meeting we will have more fun and surprises that are even crazier than normally. On this birthday, we will magically make everybody shine in the darkness. You are most welcome to celebrate with us and shine with neon lights.

11.9.2016 TIME CAPSULE

During this Sunday’s workshop, we are going to talk about our memory, reminiscences, what the world will look like in the future and what we will leave behind. In the second part of the workshop, we will visit Munemasa Takahashi’s exhibition titled “Lost & Found”. The project shows photographs of the town of Tōhoku in Japan that were found after the 2011 tsunami. In the practical part, we are going to make a time capsule containing our letters and objects connected with the contemporary world.

18.9.2016 HEAVY LIKE A FEATHER

The Sunday workshop will begin with a discussion about materials used in sculptures as artworks. We will see Tatiana Trouvé’s work titled “Refolding”, which playfully addresses materiality by making planks from wax and turning cartons into wood. In the practical part, we will also play with materials and create sculptures that will look heavy in spite of being light. Our imagination will help us make artworks from the most surprising materials.

25.9.2016 COMING OUT OF EARTH

At the start of the workshop we will venture deep inside Earth and talk about where we come from, where we are going and why we are in this world. Surrounded by darkness, we will listen to stories about the Hopi and think what answers are provided by the story about coming out of Earth. In the practical part, we will create our own myths about the beginning and end of the world, and make dolls that will help us tell the stories.
