Workshop Gent i cases i gent
A Sunday Family Workshop
Gent i cases i gent is a workshop in which families will reflect on the social meaning of housing as a human need, formulatinggoals and wishes to improve it. They will also build their own house with giant cardboard blocks in a playful activity committed to the reality that surround us.
What is the proposal of the workshop?
Starting with the guided visit to “The house” of Daniel Torres we will reflect on the evolution of housing by focusing on its human dimension. We will encourage relativization and empathy as well as creativity and cooperation between families in a fun activity that will end with the consensual construction of a house of cardboard bricks and other materials.
What will be performed on the workshop?
This activity is organized in three parts. First we will have a guided visit to the exhibition “La casa” of Daniel Torres. There we will talk about changes in homes throughout ages. That will take us to a brief reflective workshop on the different social realities of housing taking into account economic, political or cultural variables. This way, we will not only enrich our vision of the world but also build empathy for disadvantaged communities. In the latter part of the workshop we will play “the house”, one of the most traditional and successful games of all times, where creativity, imagination and cooperation between families will take place.
Who is this workshop for?
This workshop is intended for family audience. The activity is recommended for children from 5 years of age. The capacity is 25 people and adult admission is limited to a maximum of two adults per child.
Who gives this workshop?
In Críos&Roll we are dedicated to family leisure, cultural management and other activities for children. We promote values, we do not demonize technology and believe in an enjoyable leisure shared by different age people. All our actions are based on the pillars of autonomy, free choice and respect for children.
How long does it last?
The activity consists of a half-hour visit to the exhibition and an hour-long workshop.
