More workshops for Kids Session

From August 23rd to August 28th prof. Flavia Stara, Rosita Deluigi, Giuseppe Capriotti, and dr. Francesco Rocchetti, along with artists Castro and Simon Katumba, with the assistance of Elizabeth Aruba and Pwani students, conducted more actions related to the DUOS Festival Kids Session, on the theme “Women Empowerment”.
The team visited Kilimo Primary School, Nazarene Bright Junior Academy, and the association Nyota Ya Asubuhi – Koinonia, addressing about 280 kids.
Kilimo Schools students, assisted by painter Castro, actively brainstormed on the target topic and produced a large number of images on women’s social commitments. Some of the images were selected to be printed as stickers which will be distributed during the two day DUOS Festival.
At Nazarene Bright Junior Academy students, enrolled in different school grades, under the direction of sculptor Simon Katumba, created artifacts such as mosaics and illustrations.
Furthermore, the UNIMC team interacted with the responsible educators at Nyota Ya Asubuhi – Koinonia, a non-profit association devoted to supporting disadvantaged kids and families living in Ngala and Mtondia districts, a remote area surrounded by a large stone quarry. In this specific educational setting, actions focused on the “edutainment learning approach” to facilitate artistic literacy. Despite the low level of school attendance, all kids and teens engaged with enthusiasm in the workshop.
