How can we relearn how to observe our environment to take better care of it? A fun workshop to sharpen your sense of observation. Foyer. Sunday 3 December, 11am to 5pm.

Our attention to the environment is impoverished by the sheer quantity of things we see! And yet we need to be sensitive to the world around us, all the more so in times of climate crisis. But how can we relearn how to observe our environment so that we can take better care of it? Inspired by Nicolas Nova's book "Exercice d'observation", we invite you to sharpen your sense of observation in a fun way, accompanied by museum professionals: a curator, a restorer and a curator.
The workshop runs continuously from 11am to 5pm in the MEG foyer.
This event takes place on the first Sunday of the month, so it's free and there's no need to register beforehand.
Facing up to the environmental emergency, "Meetings for reflection and action".
Through this series of "meetings to think and act", we want to help you tackle the issues of the climate emergency through the prism of MEG's specific characteristics. By tackling themes such as care, repair, food, clothing and the transmission of knowledge and know-how, we want to make the impact that our everyday actions can have on the environment more perceptible, and thus question our relationship with it.
By working with you and people who are active and committed to climate and environmental issues, and by interviewing experts, artists, representatives of indigenous peoples, craftspeople and creative people, we are offering you a programme of activities that provide practical tools for action and reflection, accessible and useful to everyone.
At this event, we'll be looking at the important question of how we care for our environment. Our way of observing it, studying it and getting to know it, and consequently our way of looking after it.
