illustration of a child drawing looking at the sun
An engaging workshop in dialogue with the artworks of the SOLARPUNK exhibition. The installations lead us to envision a future where we can’t have access to the warmth of the sun or be in the open air, thereby turning to light therapy. Picturing a future where directly observing the sunlight is impossible, the young participants in the workshop will create a visual repository of the sun. A collection of drawings to depict the various shades of the sun during the day. An original insight seen through the always original and authentic perspective of children.

With this activity, girls and boys will be encouraged to reflect on the vital importance of the sun and sunlight for our survival on planet Earth. We’ll explore how we can respect our planet by making sustainable choices. Divided into different workstations, children will be asked to leave to future generations an artistic repository of drawings of the sun made with different artistic techniques and materials. They will be encouraged to give different interpretations of the Sun, and their artworks will be hung on a large wall, one next to the other, shaping a collective repository of luminous creations.

the area of the gres art 671's piazza
gres art 671’s entrance is designed to welcome people in a relaxing environment to stay in, interact, find engaging and creative activities. A covered square welcomes the public and encourages them to have fun with several stations equipped with board games. A place to relax on the seats that recall the pictogram of gres art; a place animated by the people who experiment it.

Board games, such as backgammon, chess, checkers, and bagh chal, can be found in this area. A choice driven by the desire to offer the public a place of entertainment, inspired by the benefits board games bring to those who play them, while promoting respect for other people's time and encouraging collaboration.

The covered square of gres art 671 exemplifies how a well conceived space can become a vital meeting point, where relations arise spontaneously, and where the constant dialogue stimulates community building.
