Kids' Swiss Awards

Children are invited to take on the role of jury members and present children’s awards. In a playful tour, they will get to experience Swiss art and design, explore their own taste and universally valid criteria, and learn how difficult it is to distinguish “good” from “bad”. The children will get a glimpse behind the scenes and can exchange ideas with other “jury members”.

An opportunity to discover contemporary art and design in a hands-on way! For children of school age and older. (DE/FR)
No registration necessary.
