As part of the group exhibition The Garden of Speculations, you are invited to come meet the artists who will guide you through the gallery-turned-garden. Following this multisensory experience, you can engage further with the different worlds associated with each piece through a series of skill-sharing workshops, from gardening to observation to deep listening with plants. Offered by three of the exhibiting artists, material will be provided. Free entrance. Welcome to all!
