Integrated resort operator MGM China Holdings Ltd is delivering a new event programme that uses art and culture to inspire creativity. The series of family-friendly cultural tours, handicrafts workshops and art classes runs until the end of the year, and is now open for bookings.
The “Sino-Portuguese Cultural Tour” highlights some unique aspects of both Chinese and Portuguese culture at casino-hotel MGM Macau until 31 December. The free, 30-minute guided tours feature themes such as art, architecture, music and gastronomy.
Participants can make their own traditional Portuguese arts and crafts in a limited-edition series of crafting workshops at the MGM Macau. The one- to two-hour sessions include macramé, embroidery and tile painting – accompanied by a Macanese-style afternoon tea – with prices from MOP188 to MOP388 per person.

Until August the new ’M Art space in the Emerald Lobby of the MGM Cotai is the venue for “Brewtiful Creativity”.
