Welcome to the SIAF2020 Art Mediation Program
for Kids and Families!
We invite you to join diverse activities to do
at home and during walking through Sapporo.
Let’s look at our closest surroundings and the whole city
from a different perspective.
Listen, Look, Imagine
ーAudio Guide through your house
Maybe you had a chance to experience an Audio Guide in a museum or a gallery. This time we invite you to use a special Audio Guide… at home. The voice will lead you through your house showing you things that maybe you never paid attention to. Through listening to different sounds and looking closer at your surroundings, you may discover something new in places and objects you see every day.
