Children‘s activities Kid's Calendar

Kid's Calendar May 2022 Movie cover: ©Katholisches Filmwerk

2.00-5.00pm on Saturday, 28 May

Art Library, L-Floor, Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC)

Let’s have a creative Saturday! Join us for an afternoon film screening and build your own terrarium.

For this month’s storytelling activity, you’re invited to bring your children to watch three animated German short films. All films have no dialogues so if you don’t speak German, don’t worry! Everyone will be able to understand these.
In addition, we‘re holding a workshop on how to build your own terrarium, or a kind of miniature living garden in a bottle. This is inspired by ‘The Tree’, one of the animations that we’re screening, and we hope that this will raise awareness of the importance of both trees and of the broader environment that surrounds us.

Date and Time: 2.00-5.00pm on Saturday, 28 May
Venue: L – Floor, Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BTS Station: National Stadium)
