The team of guides at the MACS invites primary, secondary and high school children to pursue the principal themes introduced during the guided visit in the museum during a class activity involving a philosophical conversation. The children are invited to formulate open questions in small groups. After a few minutes’ reflection, the whole group joins together and democratically selects one or two questions. The session continues by focusing on the chosen subject through collective critical questioning.



> To learn how to listen, to speak up and express one’s point of view.
