Wednesday, 28.08.2019 (17:00 – 21:00), at Europe Square in Larnaca
The youth who have participated in the workshop “We Art One”, the professionals who worked with them and KISA are inviting you to a festive event for the presentation of the workshop actions and the participating children’s experiences. The workshop was conducted in the framework of the transnational European project LAB 31 which focused on the right to play.
The event includes the following:
- Audiovisual material from the workshops
- Thematic stands for information and a chat by and with the participating youth
- Music-dance act by the workshop youth
Mr Andreas Vyras, Mayor of Larnaca, will address the event, while Ms Leda Koursoumba, Commissioner for the Rights of the Child, will also participate and talk about children’s right to play and its role in the integration process and equal participation in society.
The event is open to the public and there will be traditional food and drinks.
The aim of the workshop “We Art One” was through play to encourage youth from different life paths – migrants, refugees, unaccompanied children as well as from the local society, to get to know each other, to exchange ideas and learn from each other, to express their views and expectations creatively, through visual arts and play. The workshop also aimed to help them to reflect on our society and the different life chances given to different people.
The possibility of using leisure time creatively and pleasantly is one of the most attractive and hopeful parameters for feeling free and wholly. From children’s play, which is the recreation area par excellence for children, to the various forms of play through which adults relate to the world, men and women can feel themselves and enjoy their leisure time.
