The DUOS kids’ session aim is to involve kids, families, schools, and communities in meaningful creative and artistic experiences. TPAA partners will organize mixed groups of researchers, artists, teachers, students, and volunteers of local associations in order to develop educational activities and artistic workshops for kids and schools.
We’ll propose an open space of expression where kids can play with their imagination, discover new materials, colors, languages, and learning by doing.
The cooperative approach will be developed also through an artistic treasure hunt, discovering local context and details. An edutainment experience in which education will be supported by entertainment and will provide an enjoyable time with the way of creating and having an experience together.
