Heritage Day 2023 in S.M.A.K.

EGD23 blog

At S.M.A.K., we will celebrate tomorrow's heritage on Sunday, April 23. The theme of Heritage Day this year is Beastly! With us, you can choose between three activities. Want to get creative with the whole family? Then there is the Beastly Art Matinee. For the little ones, there is a Beastly Story Trail. You will also explore ecological themes in Rose Wylie's works of art together with our guide.
