Art and Activism


Next date:

Family Room, the MAC

The MAC, 10 Exchange Street West
Co. Belfast

We're excited that kids workshops are making their return to the MAC!

Art and Activism is a one-hour workshop suitable for 6 - 10 year olds.

In this workshop, children will be introduced to our current exhibition But this material… by Anne Tallentire and our collaboration with Participation and the Practice of Rights (PPR) who are campaigning for housing rights in Belfast and beyond.

Working with a professional artist, children will get the chance to make collages and posters that explore housing inequality - a key theme of the exhibition. Art and Activism helps kids develop their understanding of social issues whilst getting creative and having their say.

The children will be invited to exhibit their art on our gallery wall until 21 November. 

Parents/guardians: you're welcome to grab a coffee at the Cafe Bar or visit the galleries while the workshop is running.

These workshops have limited capacity, and if this event is sold out, please email to be added to the waiting list.
