Sunday at MAO: MINIMAO creative workshops for children and families
Sunday creative workshops are aimed at our young visitors. They are a place of fun, play, creativity, learning and socialising, where children aged 5 to 15 learn about architecture, design and photography. Through conversation and using fun learning tools, worksheets or computer projections children explore the topics of exhibitions and then use what they’ve learned, and a great deal of imagination, to create their own items.
The workshops will focus on identifying what are the properties of plastics and why has it displaced other materials in design, environmental protection, we will integrate poetry and eco-waste bins, discover the waterways around the castle, create collages and recycle objects.
Guided tours of architectural objects and urban structures of current interest are organized once a month. Individual buildings and structures are presented by architects, landscape architects, designers, urban planners and other experts who participated in their planning and construction.
A symposium taking place on 13 March 2017 will discusse topic of ecology and restoration of plastic objects. Among the speakers will be Thea Van Oosten, a specialist with regard to restoration of plastic, Andrew Ramšak with the National Institute of Biology, Uroš Robič, author of the film Plastik Fantastik, from the Institute for Water of the Republic of Slovenia, representatives of the company AquafilSLO and others.
