With Relaxed Session

Join artist Paola Bascón to reflect on nature in this free workshop, led by an audio guide, where families have the chance to engage in a sonic and drawing experience.

Paola Bascón is a multidisciplinary artist working between Berlin and La Paz. Paola's artistic research deals with oral storytelling traditions, colonial history and the understanding of nature. Her practice engages in somatic and object based sensorial explorations.

This workshop gives participants the opportunity to engage in sonic and drawing exercises, inspired by the Our Time on Earth exhibition.

There will be three sessions in total, each lasting 45 minutes, with a limited capacity of 20 people per session.

Relaxed Session: The first hour (10.15am – 11am) will be a relaxed session for anyone who would benefit from a more informal approach to noise and movement in the space. This means there will be fewer people, no music and more one-to-one time with the artist.

Visiting the Our Time on Earth exhibition
