On Sunday, November 18th Explora has celebrated the International Children’s Day : planned “I learn, express myself and become a Creative Maker”, a free-admission event for all children, as part of the CREATIVE MAKERS.
Inspired by Article 13 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child that recognizes the right to freedom of expression either orally, in writing, in print or in the form of art, the event aims at engaging younger children in activities and innovative workshops where they can experiment with letterpress printing before the opening, scheduled for next February, of the “Made in Explora” space, the first kids’ fablab.
Designed by Explora in collaboration with artist Maria Zaramella, a graphic designer specialized in educational letterpress projects for children, the workshops, differentiated by age groups, are open to public and take place at the following timed visits: 10:00 am, 12:00 pm, 03:00 pm and 05:00 pm:

More than 1,150 adults and children took part at the event.
