The MGLC strives to be an open and welcoming creative space that we love to be in and to return to. At the MGLC's family and children's programmes, we animate children, observe through curious eyes, open interesting conversations and hunt for inner images in an educational and fun way.
For us, art is like an engine run by creativity, introducing us to the contents of the art world and bringing them closer to us. So let us take a ride into a world of countless and unusual ideas!
By prior arrangement, the activities can also be adapted for the sensory and mobility impaired.
Animated film workshop
The workshops lasting three hours or more are linked to the contents of the temporary exhibitions at Tivoli Mansion and the Švicarija. We translate messages from exhibitions into the medium of animation and pixellation. The workshops are intended for children aged 9 or more. They are organised in cooperation with SLON association.
Free of charge.
