PROJECT FOR 0–6 YEARS
Picture: Patri Nieto.
We started this line of research last year, starting with the question: What do 0 to 6 year-old children like? In order to find answers, we visited crèches and nursery schools as an exercise in observation and took away a number of clues:
- The yoghurt lid. Remove it, ‘read’ it and put it away.
- Stick the mandarin segment stickers in unusual patterns.
- Feed other children
- Mix colours. Paint over and over with a lot of tempera paint. Until the paper breaks.
- Peel the stickers off the crayons.
- Little things. A bit of fluff, a speck. A tiny sequin on the floor that hardly anyone sees.
- Make a bracelet out of a slice of bread.
- Shiny things. Sequins and iridescent fabric. *
With a notebook filled with new actions to put into practice, we continue into this year by giving shine to this research carried out by the education department at the CA2M Museum together with the EnterArte collective. For the coming months, we will be planning new actions, internal meetings and other open activities to think about how to make the museum a softer experience and prepare to open it up to the widest range of people.

This activity belongs to the line Escuela desbordada / Talleres de educación (‘Overflowing School / Education Workshops’) held by the EnterArte collective, which is a part of Asociación Civil Acción Educativa.
This year the project will continue experimenting with the mysterious; an activity inviting us to let ourselves be carried along and discover the space of the museum, paying particular attention to minimum detail, to little things and what normally goes unnoticed.
