Teenagers, Community & Creativity
At the Slovak National Gallery we launched a course for teenagers (13-16 years old) called Meetup SNG in 2017. The aim of the course is to present a gallery as a place for spending valuable time with peers and art. We focus on supporting creativity, critical thinking, current events and expressing one’s own opinions. Since the beginning the course has undergone several adjustments in which we had to take into account specifics of the target group. The most significant one is enabling meetings with young contemporary Slovak artists, which we see as very effective and unique for this age group. During the workshops being led by the artists the participants gain inspiration for empowering their own creativity.
