Japanese fables and tales at the Manggha Museum.

Muzeum Manggha w Krakowie
The Manggha Museum of Japanese Art and Technology would like to invite children to a series of meetings with Japanese culture, which will take place on the following Sundays: 2 September, 7 October, 4 November and 2 December. The Museum has prepared a project for the youngest visitors, and this year's edition will focus on Japanese fairy tales and fables. During the meetings, children will learn about holidays and customs, animals, Japanese superheroes, Japanese seasons, landscape elements and culinary traditions.

Telling and reading fairy tales from outside our culture is intended to open up children to new and different experiences, to teach them tolerance and to show them a different system of values. The series of events will present fairy tales already published in Poland, as well as newly translated, little-known Japanese stories and legends. After getting acquainted with a few of them, children will be able to take part in workshops referring to the stories they have heard: calligraphy, creating stamps, origami and games based on Japanese art techniques. After the workshops, they will be able to take their works home. The meetings will take place in various spaces of the Manggha Museum – the main hall, gallery, and the exhibition hall – on specially prepared Japanese carpets and mats. The space is always planned in a way that enables parents to sit with or next to their children. After the meeting, the organisers will invite everybody for a cup of Japanese tea and refreshments fitting the theme of the meeting.

In order to attend the meeting with fairy tales and to participate in workshops, you will need to purchase a family ticket for the exhibition purchased on a given day.
