The new edition of our famous Family Day is all about India. In the frame of europalia.india, discover the exhibition The Body in Indian Art, about the human and the divine body. The guides in the exhibition galleries will gladly provide you more information about whatever you want to know about the sculptures, paintings, miniatures or jewellery. And then you can set to work yourself during one of our creative workshops!
Orchestrated by Katrien Oosterlinck, Jordi Ferreiro, and Marthe Van Dessel.

Explore the musical world of Indian art with your Family Day Pass! A cornucopia of emotions, discoveries and sensations awaits you.
