Young and old can play out the history of the Palace Square, explore social structures using a role-playing game, make elaborate sound wigs or create stop-motion animations of their ideas for the future. Fun and creativity are the name of the game in this series of Sunday activities. Come by any time and join in the fun!

No registration necessary, free of charge

The Palace Game

What’s the quickest way to get to the king? And who decides? In this performative role-playing game you can slip into the roles of different Palace inhabitants and playfully test out the social mechanisms and hierarchies in the court.

Sound Wigs
