Artists, children, and associations meet for creative workshops at Hangar Y


Art Explora joined forces with Thanks for Nothing, a non-profit organisation specialised in the development and production of cultural and social projects in the fields of education, the environment, and solidarity, for a unique event prior to Hangar Y’s pre-opening on the weekend of 22nd October. 

On Saturday 8th October and Monday 10th October, the Hangar hosted creative and artistic workshops for associations and schools led by some of the most important artists on the international contemporary art scene

This collaborative creative activity gave the children, teenagers, and adults who were invited to the Hangar the opportunity to create tangible or intangible collective work, as imagined by the artists present.
