The Studiolo programmation is multidisciplinary, involving visual arts, but also fashion, design and performance. The space is configured for young audiences but the programs are for one and all: children, teenagers, adults. The overall programmation is conceived as an opportunity to share skills, know-hows, techniques, but also to reflect on their uses, allowing participants to develop a direct relationship with the creative process. 

Collaborations are initiated between the public, artists, and creators, but also with artisans, technicians and a variety of specialists. Handson workshops allow participants to contribute to an artistic project.  In addition, training and initiation sessions take place in the Studiolo.

Qualitative midterm and longterm work is the main focus, engaging the same participants over several sessions. However, regular punctual activities are also offered.
Specific programs are offered for youth and adults, as well as for families. 


Who wants to have fun? Who likes running? Who likes jumping?
Who can see everything and who closes their eyes when they count?

This workshop invites children to design and create playgrounds. The three-day workshop consists of different stages of design and creation: large-scale drawings, model-making, the establishment of rules, and the assembling of rubber forms, etc. 

Based on an objective that’s open to interpretation, children are free to re-appropriate space, forms and colours in order to re-invent the principles and usages that define the concept of ‘playing’ and ‘play area’. Each child produces his/her own logbook as a memento of this collective creative experience. 

A graduate of the École des Arts Décoratifs in Strasbourg, Lily Sato, born in 1987, began a collaboration with the French artists collective (LA)HORDE in 2014. Since then, she has worked as a costume designer and scenographer on a number of different projects and events: music videos, short films and plays.  A graduate of the École nationale supérieure des arts visuels, La Cambre (Brussels), Marine Peyraud, born in 1990, designs fabrics and print designs across a variety of domains: fashion, lifestyle and video. In 2012, Marine and Lily co-founded Studio Bankrupt with which, over the course of 5 years, they have worked on different projects at the crossroads of art and design. Together, they have designed a new workshop – PLAYGROUNDS –a special creation for the Studiolo and its public!

The workshop is open to both French and English-speaking children.

Three-day workshop: Oct. 31, Nov. 1 & 2
