The Power of/within family*

  • set a model
    workshop / "prototype"

The "Young IDEA Lab Togo" is the first of more to come! All upcoming labs will lead to the final "international family meeting".

Every person associates family with a space of secureness, development and life experiences in our constantly challenging globalized world. What do children and adults need to (further) develop together in this world, to be capable to act on their own, and be emotionally rich and physically healthy?

WHAT IS THIS PROJECT ABOUT

The first Young IDEA Lab  will take part in Lomé [Togo]. It is build on the results of the international students meeting of 2018 [take a closer look here].

 

Together with young professionals from all over the world we want to further develop a concept to work with children and their parents with forms of biographical and research theater. In various workshops for the children and adults we want to connect, find answers and express ourselves.

With methods of Theater and Education, the Performing and Visual Arts we want to explore on various levels questions concerning family and the power of family! The idea is to connect step by step people of different ages and from different continents of the world through performing and visual arts.

 

We want to repeat the event with the Method we create together every year in a different country, with a lot of different children. This is a step in-between so that in a few years, with a different sponsorship, a media presence and already collected scientific knowledge an international family meeting can take place.
 

The workshops will be documented on film and photography.
The concept of the workshops will be published in the form of a handbook.
Furthermore, a research group will document the needs of children and adults expressed artistically during the workshops and write about the importance of artistic expression in life.

The whole documentary and research results will be published on our website.

Be a part of this great event!
