Spring School Holiday Program

Young artists can explore the relationship between building and the environment in this series of collaborative workshops.

Spaces are limited and workshops will book out quickly. Bookings are essential.


BALIK BAYAN WORKSHOPS with MARIKIT SANTIAGO

Barrio | Paper Town

“Barrio” is a Spanish word meaning “small community” – join us for a collaborative workshop as we build a community from the ground up.

Young artists will work together to construct a mini town or barrio from cardboard boxes and recycled materials. Children can choose to be members of this fictional community such as farmer or business owner, and make a town that considers the needs of an imagined landscape.
