Greetings from FREESPACE workshop

  • Zeitz MOCAA, V&A Waterfront Cape Town (map)

Bring your little ones for a fun morning of drawing at the museum. This workshop is designed for children between the ages of 6 and 12.

Within the magnificent space of Zeitz MOCAA, children will envision their FREESPACE of the future.

In this inspirational workshop, children create a series of engaging drawings and mark-making activities, where they will learn about elements of space that make up their environment and will learn sustainability principles in a fun and energised creative environment.

Led by experienced teachers, children will be inspired by the space and encouraged to explore a range of drawing and collage techniques.

The results will be captured in a series of postcards which will be exhibited as part of the #FREESPACE sculptural installation outside the Zeitz MOCAA and will be sent to the Mayor of Cape Town, communicating your children’s hopes and dreams for the future.


10am – 1pm. Age 6 – 12
