Children and teenagers experience and create art

OpenART Kids is an initiative that started off from our belief that talent, a playful mind and youthful energy go hand in hand. We actively support young talent to surface by engaging children and young people aged 4-19 years into interesting encounters with art and encouraging them to create artworks, with inspiration from OpenART.

Family tours, creative workshops, self-guiding kits and guided tours for kindergartens and schools are available at no charge from June 16 to September 4.

Our programme is developed in cooperation with Örebro County Museum, Örebro County’s Art Consultant, Örebro Art Gallery, and Konstfrämjandet Bergslagen, with support from Region Örebro Län, Futurum and the Municipality of Örebro.
