Cosmoscow Kids programme is developed by the School of Modern Art (SOMA) specially for Cosmoscow 2016 edition.
As part of the programme, children are encouraged to participate in a fascinating three-day creative adventure. They will discover and master the collage technique as well as individual methods used by a number of important artists from Picasso to Braque. The programme will also include workshops and other sorts of artistic activities, both individual and collective.
Using a single technique, on day-to-day basis children will be making up beautiful and fascinating world step by step. This unique integral project has to be lived through. Working on this global collage city they will form an attitude towards the world.
What is more important: to reveal your own vision of the world or to see and appreciate the variety of others’ visions? Raising this question nurtures tolerance in children. The kind of tolerance that can only be cultivated in dialogue and socializing, as a result of an ability to hear voices of people around. During the programme each kid will have an opportunity to express himself and to appreciate his contribution to the common cause.
In a three-day time the kids will build up a city model of small pieces. Resembling a carefully assembled mosaic, it will be unique and individual as a life of each person.
