Edu Summer 2022

The Education Department of Pirelli HangarBicocca presents Edu Summer 2022, a program of events for children aged between 6 and 11, with summer camps during the week and a series of free workshops for families at the weekend.
Edu Summer 2022, which will run from 11 June to 3 July 2022 at Pirelli HangarBicocca and in the Bicocca district, takes its inspiration from Anicka Yi’s exhibition "Metaspore", which explores the relationship between art and science and is currently on display in the exhibition spaces.

The summer camps are put on with the collaboration of the artistic duo The Cool Couple, and the workshops will be led by Agnese Sonato, a science communicator, and Roberto Sartor, an expert in didactics and experiential training, who will interact with the young participants and their families with creative projects and activities that explore different forms of artistic expression.

Summer Camps with artists

From 13 June to 1 July
For children aged 7 to 11

“Tuttoattaccato” – which might be “AllOneWord” but with the idea of “all interconnected” – is the new project for the summer camps, based on the concept of an ecosystem in which everything around us is interconnected. Created and developed by the artistic duo The Cool Couple together with the arts tutors of Pirelli HangarBicocca, the project is inspired by the temporary exhibition "Metaspore" by Anicka Yi, whose works give visible form to the way all creatures, living and even non-living, share a common interconnected world that we can find out about by using our senses.

Each day, the children will try their hand at activities involving the languages of art, science and technology to imagine and create fantastic unexplored planets together with the artists. Through artistic activities, games, books and outings in the area, the children will discover how everything around them is the result of interrelationships and connections, and how art and science together can help create and imagine possible future worlds.

“Tuttoattaccato” will be repeated for three weeks, with each session for a particular age group, from Monday to Friday from 8.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m.

“In Search of Invisible Worlds”

Saturday 11 June and Saturday 25 June 2022
Created and presented by Agnese Sonato
Workshop for children aged 6 and over and their families, at 11 a.m., repeated at 3 p.m.

A journey from the infinitely large to the infinitely small to find out together how scientists discover, observe and build invisible objects, and how to turn the invisible into a work of art. Agnese Sonato will help us use the eyes of science to see the marvels that are invisible to the naked eye, but which are part of the world around us and part of our everyday lives, helping us discover them and all their secrets.

“Minimum Universes: In Search of Splendid Space”

Saturday 18 June and Sunday 3 July 2022
Created and led by Roberto Sartor
Workshop for children aged 6 and over and their families, at 11 a.m., repeated at 3 p.m.

An authentic exploration of the nature around Pirelli HangarBicocca, to observe, touch and smell the countless forms of life that silently inhabit our neighbourhoods. Many different, interlinked forms tell us about the most fascinating events in the history of Earth, with their survival strategies and their creativity and intelligence. Imperceptible and motionless living beings, microclimates and ecosystems, intercontinental journeys and planetary influences. A journey of discovery that will fill us with amazement and curiosity.
