Activity dedicated to the International Family Day
May 14, 2017
On May 14th, Public Relations and Museum Education Section organized a workshop on "My Family Tree" dedicated to the International Family Day. The purpose of the activity was to encourage a better relationship between children and parents, to stimulate the knowledge of the family's past and the historical value of objects kept by generations - old documents, photographs, letters, papers, etc. The practical part was devoted to writing the family genealogy. The children worked with enthusiasm with help from mothers or grandparents, each child creating his own "tree" in the origami technique, with dear names and surnames, which are lost in the darkness of time...
The workshop had a theoretical and practical part. In the first part, the museographers revealed the meaning, the method and the importance of making the family tree for a better knowledge of family history. This knowledge gives the children the feeling that they have a place in the world, that they have an inheritance that must be respected and continued. The families who participated in the workshop were invited outline the life story, the identity and belonging to their genealogical line.
The educational activity "My Family tree" was organized in collaboration with the Origami Center Moldova.
