Family Day Art Workshop:
Pinhole Cinema

This event is suitable for families with children ages 6 to 11. Every child must be accompanied by an adult. Each ticket includes admission for one child and two adults. Families with two children and one adult must purchase two tickets.

Discover the science of storytelling by building a head-mounted 'Pinhole Cinema’!

M+ invites families to unleash their creativity by turning a closable box into a portable pinhole device. In this self-initiated journey, families will carry their creations and explore the museum and its surrounding scenery from outside-the-box angles. They will exchange their perspectives to create a shared memory.

After the event, families can bring home their self-made mini cinema and continue their creative experience as an extension of the workshop.

This workshop is a collaboration with LENS, an independent Tokyo-based creative lab founded by designers Kenichi Okada and Kunie Hiyamizui.

No matter when and where, there is always a 'Pinhole Cinema' in everyone's mind. It allows us to see the scenery we believe to be important. Photo: M+, Hong Kong

We invite families to share their creativity through various types of activities that foster deeper connections among members and with other families as we come together to form a vibrant family collage on an open platform at M+.
