Training the Senses event

From the SenseSquared project, Marres is organizing a three-day training that revolves around the question:

How to facilitate an artistic attitude for creativity and research in the classroom.

To this end, Marres is organizing a Training the Senses event for education. Training the Senses include interactive workshops at the intersection of art and science.


Workshops will take place from June 4-6, 2024, given by the European partners from the Erasmus+ project. Six European cultural institutions, universities and schools have partnered to implement a more artistic attitude for sustainable development in education Europe-wide.

The workshops are therefore aimed at European teachers in primary, secondary and tertiary education and will be held at Marres in Maastricht. Each day between 16:00 and 19:00, teachers, educators, pedagogical staff and other interested parties can participate.
