The activity carried out by Educativo MCB takes place on August 14th, Saturday, at 10am

The suitcase is the next object of investigation in the virtual drawing workshop “What object is this?”, offered by Educativo MCB.

Suitcases are emblematic objects and have a deep relationship with the act of travelling, getting around or migrating. They are the ones who carry what is essential when someone, for a short or long period, distances themselves from their home. What the suitcase holds can indicate where you are starting, where you are going, or what you want to accomplish.

Bags that travel for tourism have a different baggage than bags that migrate in exile. Bags arriving from vacation pack different luggage from bags traveling for work reasons. There are also suitcases that, instead of traveling, become furniture where items worthy of memory are kept.

When opening a suitcase, it might even be possible – from the observation of objects that are dear to us – to draw a generic profile about our personalities.

How are your bags used?

The activity takes place on Saturday, August 14th, from 10am. Come with your suitcase and gourd!

Children and adults are welcome.
