Pop by the Social this summer and get stuck into free learning and play activities inspired by Yayoi Kusama: You, Me and the Balloons

Designed especially for little ones, there’s plenty of free, self-led activities for families to choose from all summer long.

Pick up a free printout and try out a range of learning activities designed by Manchester artists Princess Arinola Adegbite and Venessa Scott.

There’s also Kusama-inspired colouring in sheets, fashion dolls and sensory toys, as well as pumpkins, mushrooms and tentacles to drop your own dots onto.

And if that’s not enough, there’s a specially-made exhibition guide jampacked with creative writing, art, movement and fashion activities which all link to the national curriculum.

There’s always something to do each day and it’s all free to get stuck into. Why not go along and try something new?
