Call for ARTISTS MEET EARLY YEARS
LA BARACCA – TESTONI RAGAZZI, BOLOGNA
24 February – 5 March, 2017
Artists meet Early years offers the artists a chance to meet early years right in the places where children belong to an educational community, cre?ches and kindergartens, in order to observe them, to become more familiar with them, collecting suggestions and images that can be useful to the development of a personal artistic research on the youngest ones.
Thanks to Artists meet Early years, 6 young artists (under 35 years old) will have the opportunity to visit some educational services belonging to IES (institution for schools and education of the Municipality of Bologna) dedicated to children 0-3 or 3-6 years old for two consecutive days.
Two days in a row in the same school, where the artists selected will be free to present fragments of a performance, tell a story or lead a workshop, either in a kindergarten or in a cre?che.
By meeting the children again in their educational environment the very next day, the artists can live a new kind of experience with them.
Coming back means to be able to understand, in a better way, the reality of the educational services visited, as well as to build up a direct relationship with children and educators.
Artists meet Early years will take place from February 27th to March 3rd 2017.
This call is open to 6 artists, also to the last year participants, to whom we will offer accommodation and subsistence for 3 days and facilitations for the festival activities.
