The program also includes unconventional workshops delivered by artists and educators, and an exciting quest for visitors of all ages.

Lost in translation Quest

People communicate through various languages—using speech, writing, gestures and tactile contact. The components of the quest allow participants to better understand the languages we employ. Offering diverse devices for completing the quest, it helps participants to experience the obstacles people with disabilities face on a regular basis, and find the ways to overcome them.

A workshop on creating tactile models Hands On!

Blind and sight-limited people regularly attend museum exhibitions. Especially for such visitors, Garage has been creating tactile models that can be explored by touching, or, literally, “seen with hands”. Workshop participants will try to approach contemporary art though touch and create their own tactile versions of contemporary artworks from modeling clay.

Workshops delivered by tutors of the TSEKH School of Contemporary Dance

This is a family workshop for parents with young children. Through dance, play, and movement the participants will comprehend a new language of communication. By experimenting with various dance elements, each family will create a group portrait or a moving sculpture, resulting in their own stories told in the form of dance.

Explore the Space

Tutors will ask children to explore the theme of communication between human body and the surrounding environment: how is it possible to change and complement the architecture of a building? or, become invisible for the people around? or, familiarize an unknown place? The participants will complete creative exercises while moving around the Museum building guided by experienced dancers and examining diverse dance and movement techniques.
