The education program Extended is a joint project of Marres and the Jan van Eyck Academy, where young people work in teams for four months on a social art project. In Extended, young people explore how to use or experience their senses in a different way. In doing so, they are helped by curators, scientists, artists and communication heroes so that the cultural sector is discovered from different sides.

The group of young people that started in February 2024 will explore the themes of culture and identity. In the past weeks, they received a sound massage workshop from Hans Van Regenmortel of Musica Impulscentrum (BE), walked the scent walk In search of Lost Time by Sanne Vaassen, participated in workshops by Cemre Kara in which they learned to visualize scent and walked through the exhibition Opaque Spirits using various visible thinking assignments and sensory mapping. In the last two weeks, the youth are working on ideas for their final project, for which they already held a presentation during Museum Night on April 19 at the Jan van Eyck Academy.
