MUS-E Belgium, member of the 'International Yehudi Menuhin Foundation, was founded in 2000 as a non profit organisation specialized in artistic activities for children. It works as a platform for professional artists of all disciplines willing to experience their artistic research in other fields such as teaching, social activities or creative activities, in Flanders, Wallonia and Brussels.

Three workshops will be held this year for kids willing to explore their sense of creativity and develop their artistic skills. The workshops are based on the same material, which are the little objects that one can found in his or her daily life. Each workshop will be the occasion to focus on a new aspect of these little treasures.

Workshop for kids on May 22nd :
The children will gather small objects of the daily life, and compose structures with them. They will then assemble the structures into bodily-inspired forms.
