A set of white construction bricks gives them the opportunity to build their own miniature.
The educational file enables teachers to work with Het Dorp in their classes. It gives questions and answers, observations and short tasks on Het Dorp, on Gert Robijns' other works and, more in general, on conceptual art. All educational tools are available for free at UiTbalie of Sint-Truiden.
