GCS Summer Workshops And Activities

Gibraltar Cultural Services is offering several workshops and activities for young people to enjoy this summer. 

A statement from GCS follows below:

The programme includes two art related workshops and a yoga session for  kids at GEMA Gallery. Outdoor Storytelling sessions and a Summer Book Club at the John  Mackintosh Hall Library are also part of the offering. The latter aims to encourage young  readers to keep up their reading, explore new books and advance their reading skills over the  summer months.  

GEMA Gallery will be embracing the summer season with another specific curation, focusing  on Gibraltar’s beaches and coastline. The last vault will see artworks from a variety of artists  and styles showing off another collection of works which have not been seen together before;  a subject matter that continues to capture the interest of artists.  

The Mario Finlayson National Art Gallery will offer an updated discovery trail for young  people with other interactive material available for our younger visitors. Newly acquired  works by Mario Finlayson will also be on display. 

A Street Art Mural walk is part of the programme too, encouraging participants to learn about  Gibraltar’s murals and artists with interesting ideas and concepts shared. An ideal family  outing, which has proved extremely popular with schools this past year. 

Booking is essential for all events. Please call 20049161 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information and bookings.
