Arisa Foundation in collaboration with Zapurza Museum of Art and Culture presents:

The Creative Lab Festival

The fest included several activities that were enjoyed by families. Children’s games that encouraged cognitive development and critical thinking were a hit, along with workshops involving the community, enhancing body and self-awareness. Brain games engaged minds and inspired creativity and imagination.

Psychology tests encouraged conversations about mental health and well-being. Neuro-aesthetics experiments inspired questions about the science of art. Art-based therapy sessions guided the audience toward introspection. Conversations about artificial intelligence and its role in art took place. Guided arts and crafts workshops, including pottery and glass painting, were held. Open mic and pop-quiz sessions entertained attendees. Stalls and exhibitions promoted individual artists. There were also a few special events that attendees had to stay tuned to find out more about!
