Enjoy We Are Family at a relaxed early opening

With: Karanjit Panesar

From 18-28 August, We Are Family artist Karanjit Panesar takes over the first floor of Arnolfini, turning the gallery into a family space and studio in which you can create a collaborative experimental film.

On 25 August, come into our family gallery space before we are open to enjoy hands-on activity in a relaxed environment.

Join Arnolfini's learning team to play with giant props and miniature sets, as we imagine our perfect future worlds. Use green screen technology to layer ideas and films together and watch your work appear live on the big screen.

This session is particularly suitable for neurodiverse children and families, children with autism or additional needs who may find it easier to enjoy the activity in a calmer environment. Families are welcome to come for the early opening and stay for as long as they would like into the afternoon.

There is a quiet room available for families to use throughout the day if you need to take time out from the gallery.

To book your place or to talk to someone about what to expect from the event or how we can make it more accessible for you or your children please contact:
0117 917 2300.

Most suitable for 5+ but all are welcome to have a go. Please book for all members of your party.

Not able to make 25th August? We also have a Relaxed Opening on Wednesday 23rd August.
