IN.SIDE OUT WORKSHOP
During the pandemic windows became the only medium to communicate with the outside world. The students were asked to draw, paint, create poetry or songs that describe what they see from their windows. This creative release has served as a cathartic tool to connect audiences around the world. Teachers at different institutions received instructions to conduct this workshop. The reactions are collected featuring the first name of the child, age and place where they are from. These are featured here as a digital collection.
If you would be interested in conducting this workshop with your local class or the kids around you please do not hesitate to CONTACT US︎︎︎ for further information.
WAR CHILDHOOD MUSEUM WORKSHOP
As a part of our exhibition, Metaxy Curatorial Kollectiv is also collaborating with the Sarajevo-based War Childhood Museum. As part of its extensive education program, the Museum provides a range of workshops for children from 4 to 19. Its key modules revolve around peacebuilding, particularly for those aged 11 and up. For younger children, the Museum offers workshops on e.g. gender relations - through the book "rebel girls", the importance of play - through a drawing workshop on Pippi Longstocking, or the necessity of peace - through imagining and drawing "animals of peace".
In connection to the themes of “home” and “belonging”, the War Childhood Museum will be hosting a workshop which sheds light on those without the opportunity to find a safe space to call home. Participants will include those who have found a new home in the Veneto region, in cooperation with Refugees Welcome Veneto, together with Italian students of the same age-group (16-19).
