2018 Summer Vacation Program
Workshops for Kids Ages 7 to 10 (in German)

The summer vacation program 2018 is fully booked.

What would a new and better world look like? Would it be round like a scoop of ice cream? Cubical like a planet from Minecraft? Who would live there and why?

In one-week workshops, the kids explore, discover, and try out options for a new world of their own creation. Their questions, ideas, and experiments will be incorporated into the structure of the new Children’s Museum at the Jewish Museum Berlin. The workshops will begin with the story of Noah’s Ark, which is described in Torah, the Christian Bible, and the Quran alike.

Monday 6 to Friday 17 August, 10 am–4 pm
Where

W. M. Blumenthal Academy, Workshop

Fromet-und-Moses-Mendelssohn-Platz 1, 10969 Berlin
(Opposite the Museum)

The summer vacation program is designed for children aged 7 to 10. Each workshop group includes up to ten kids, allowing for individualized supervision.

In WORLD.LAB 1, the kids will imagine other worlds then construct them out of recycled materials for a stop-motion film.

In WORLD.LAB 2, we will stage the multiplicity of a new beginning as a theatrical performance with games, dancing, and music.

The artworks will be created in the workrooms of the Academy of the Jewish Museum. Daily movement games and philosophical musings about friendship, cultural diversity, and much more are especially fun in the Museum Garden when the weather is nice. Breaks for outdoor play and healthy lunches from eßkultur are part of the program.

The workshop closes with an art opening, where the kids present their futuristic projects to parents, friends, and the public.
