miniespai brExperiment, create and play

At ACVic, we have created a new reading and playing space where children, teenagers, families, educators... where we can discover various games, illustrated books or albums, to inspire them to create, experiment and play through contemporary artistic activities.

In playful surroundings, you can discover art games and books and do the activities, making use of materials which will be provided and the help of the specialists. You'll discover new ways of playing with creativity, including various ways of understanding the contemporary arts.

When we can use the Minispace?

- the use is free, and the opening hours are:

From Tuesday to Friday from 10.00 to 13.00 h and from 17.00 to 19.00 h
Saturday from 11.00 to 14.00 h and from 17.00 to 19.00 h

Who the miniespai is aimed at, and how to use it:

- Accompanied children, and young adults and family groups. Discover, read, create and experiment together.

Creative ideas to help pass the quarantine

#ensquedemacasa #StayAtHome

So we have to stay a few days at home. How can we make best use of the time?
Now is when doing things together as a family, and enjoying creative pastimes, might not be such a bad idea!

We at ACVic have gathered 14 easy-to-do suggestions for activities which will help every member of the family express their creativity and imagination!

We’ve chosen a number of activities from ACVic’s family workshops, one for each day.

They won’t take long, and may be adapted according to participants’ ages.

Ready to start? So, listen and concentrate. You’re invited to become real explorers, looking into all the corners of your home. But be warned, you’ll need to make good use of all five of your senses!

A collective creation experience set around a Happening

A creative experience by Rafa Castañer and David Faure

From 11am to 13pm

Everyone present at the activity will invent a Happening together. This is a collective creation experience in which, at the end of the session, we’ll conclude with an "artwork" somewhere between performance, music and drawing.
Come with all your senses wide open, and in a frame of mind to laugh your head off! We open the doors to all forms of movement, and all kinds of ways of thinking and expressing ourselves, bringing them altogether and celebrating them in community.
