Welcome to the first family weekend of the new year!
Inspired by the fascinating exhibition Oceania (open until 29 April) at the Royal Museum of Art and History in Brussels, ABC, in collaboration with the museum’s education department, has developed various activities to discover the mysteries of this island continent together with the whole family.
Join us on an adventurous sea voyage across the Pacific Ocean to Easter Island, Hawaii or New Zealand and return with mysterious stories about coconut monsters, with totems for the spirits or tattoo symbols on your chin… Be inspired by grand-master Matisse for your own underwater collage, swing poi balls through the air or pose with a mask of your choice…
In addition, there are, as always, a variety of playful activities for any age throughout the house or you can participate in one of the following workshops:

Every first day of the month ABC sends a mail: “Posta silenziosa.” A powerful image, a provocative quote, a poetic thought, etc, coming from the ABC collection or the web, and sometimes linked to one of our current projects, but mainly just because we like to surprise you. An eye- or heartcatcher, or call it ‘a healthy form of emotional irritation.’
