Museum of Cycladic Art
From Metaxourgeio to the Stathatos Mansion… A strange walk through history and creativity

The Museum of Cycladic Art will be getting its Children’s Programmes for 2011-2012 underway with a weekend of creative activities. On October 1-2, parents and children will have the opportunity to take a strange walk, stopping off:

In Metaxourgeio, the working class neighbourhood that sprang up around the old silk works in the mid 19th century and

At the Stathatos Mansion, a neoclassical residence in the centre of Athens.

On Saturday 1 October 2011, the Museum of Cycladic Art will move its children’s workshops downtown for the day, to Metaxourgeio. The creative activities staged there, in the Konstas residence on Giatrakou street, will seek to familiarise children and parents with an area that sprang up to cover housing and production needs in a period of rapid expansion for Athens. Metaxourgeio was home to ironworks and carriage makers, sawmills, carpenters’ workshops and printing presses as well as the silkworks (metaxi) that gave the neighbourhood its name. In the courtyard, memories of how people used to live will be brought to life by workshops in photography and collage techniques, puppet theatre performances and storytelling.

On Sunday 2 October 2011, the programmes will return home to the Museum and the elegant neoclassical premises of the Stathatos Mansion to address “Everyday life in a 19th-century neoclassical residence”. Children and parents will be shown round the Stathatos Mansion, the work of the German architect Ernst Ziller, and encouraged to discover the interior and exterior of a neoclassical mansion for themselves. A series of mini-workshops will then give participants the opportunity to meet the artists who will be leading the Museum’s workshops during the rest of the season, and to get a taste of the activities they will feature.

All the activities are age-specific and designed for children aged 3-5, 6-9 and 10-12.
