Architecture Day at DOX

The KRUH Association, in cooperation with local organizations and initiatives, is preparing its 8th annual nationwide fall festival with the participation of Czech, Moravian, and Slovak cities and towns of all sizes. Residents will thus once again have the opportunity to discover frequently concealed and interesting architectural objects in their surroundings. This year’s theme is “Architecture Together”. The DOX Centre will participate with a programme that will familiarize visitors with its latest extension – the DOX+ addition. You can look forward to an art workshop, a workshop with architects in English, and guided tours in Czech and English.

PROGRAMME

Full Surface family art workshop in Czech 

2:00 to 5:00 p.m.

Every structure, every space is separated from its surroundings in some way – sometimes only with glass or air, other times with an impermeable, strong boundary. Come explore various surfaces and materials, and try them out in art workshops – light, optics, rhythm, and feelings. The Gulliver Airship, the DOX building and DOX+, and related exhibitions – workshops for the whole family.

 

The workshop is for children over the age of 5 and adults.

Workshop capacity is limited.
