In Gallery Augusta there will be a free workshop for children from 5–7 pm. Children of all ages can build lightscapes together and those are then projected on the surfaces of Gallery Augusta. Pop in for a moment or stay for the whole duration! The workshop will be led by Inka Yli-Tepsa, who works as a visual artist / visual arts educator. Children under the age of 8 should be accompanied by a guardian.
