TRAININGS

TRAININGS is a new hands-on workshops series taking place as part of our year-long exhibition 84 STEPS. Here, Kunstinstituut Melly transforms its third-floor gallery into a dynamic space presenting artworks and installations all of which embody the theme of mental health and accessibility. For the whole year, the exhibition 84 STEPS will be activated through 60-minute therapeutic TRAININGS, which will take place on the weekends and will be led by a diverse group of (health)care practitioners.

These TRAININGS make room for the art installations of 84 STEPS to be transformed into spaces of restorative activation. Here, the relation of physical architectures, social structures, and experiences of personal and social health are explored in workshops such as aromatherapy, meditation, and dance. Audience engagement, community care and active participation are the focus. We invite you to engage, exchange, and to move your body and mind with us in these weekly TRAININGS programs.

The TRAININGS are scheduled throughout the year based on three thematic clusters:

Self-Care (June - September 2021)
Medicine, Madness, and Magic (October - December 2021)
Care for Justice (January - March 2022)

The TRAININGS are curated by Veronika Babayan and Aqueene Wilson.

As part of the Kunstinstituut Melly new house style, we are redesigning our website. Some features might not be accessible yet, but we are working on them. Thank you for your patience.
