Arts education programme at the State Gallery of Contemporary Art-Majestic: June – July 2023

The Department of Modern and Contemporary Culture of the Deputy Ministry of Culture informs the public for the arts education programme at the State Gallery of Contemporary Art-Majestic, during June and July 2023:

1. Thursday 22 June 2023 and Thursday 6 July, 19:00-21:00

“Interactive role-playing game for adults: Reception at the Gallery”

A reception with music and cocktails for the opening of the Gallery brings together artists whose works are being exhibited for the first time. There, each artist is confronted with their insecurities, desires, ambitions as well as their ‘inner demons’. They are invited to defend and promote their work, in the framework of a group exhibition.

The aim of this interactive game of role-playing is to enable participants to better understand the temperament of an artist. Participants will analyze artworks in the permanent exhibition and come into contact with some of the most important exhibits in the State Gallery. By filling out a questionnaire, they will be able to create and analyze a character with personalized traits and, by the end of the game, engage in group reflection activities that facilitate a smooth return to everyday life, led by a specialized psychologist.

Designed and facilitated by Way Out Escape Rooms team.

Limited number of participants (10), by order of priority. Reservations required.
