Anthropology for Kids: "What is Wealth?"

ACUD STUDIO 18h → Book Launch

Together with the children from the Karuna, Anthropology for Kids worked on different topics for the book "What is wealth?". At the opening of their exhibition, they will show works of children who have made comments and drawings. They invite you for a party with some food and drinks. They will also invite their experts to talk personally and on Skype. Join to discuss new ideas: how to continue the discussion about "What is wealth?" and why is it essential for our society.
