19 January - 19 May 2019


Saturdays and Sundays, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.

We are starting 2019 in the CGAC with a new edition of Workshops for Families.Children aged between 4 and 9 are invited to come with two family members to take part in this activity, which is going to be held on the third weekend of each month.It will be an opportunity for children and adults to take a deep look into creativity and contemporary art processes.

This year, we will get our passports ready to start a fantastic journey around the world in several stages, starting in the Far East and making Japan our first stop.Through the works of several Japanese artists, we will examine Japanese culture from a contemporary perspective and explore ideas, formats, discourses and artistic resources through games and creative activities.

On this occasion, we have chosen the Japanese landscape to discover spaces full of possibilities for the imagination.
