Get Connected – Sharing Stories

This interactive session at the ZOOM Children’s Museum with Mela Maresch and Kersten Kloser-Pitcher will help to get to know each other better.

After an introduction part, we invite you to get connected through your own story, guided by the question of how visits to a cultural programm are alive in you. Together we create a space to share information beyond the things we usually talk about.


Mela Maresch
Mela Maresch is an art historian and art therapist. For over 20 years she worked as an art educator for modern and contemporary art for prominent institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art, New York, Kunsthalle Vienna and Essl Museum, Klosterneuburg. Participation projects, where visitors of all ages and family backgrounds become curators and get involved in exhibition work, are her special interest. Participation creates a loyal and close relationship to the visitors, who become a lively part of the institution. Participation means sharing knowledge and connecting with the audience by creating a space of trust and exchange at eye level. She will guide you into a “story telling” game.
