Summer Kids University
Journey into techno-world: Virtual – Discovery in Space

26 June – 7 July 2017 | at ARTos Foundation

ARTos Foundation is proud to present this year’s Summer Kids University, entitled “Journey into techno-world: Virtual which will take place on the 26 June – 7 July 2017, as crash course.

Through a series of participatory workshops for children between the ages of 6 – 12 years old, Kids University aims to promote the knowledge and experience that help to create strong personalities and creative and critical thinkers, with free will and confidence.

Kids University is a workshop for curious and charismatic children, which has been taking place at the ARTos Foundation since 2005 with great success. Every winter, spring and summer, educators and professionals from the fields of the arts and sciences, create a specially designed programme where children have the opportunity to develop both of their brain hemispheres: the creative hemisphere and the logical hemisphere, as to be able to envision and materialize their dreams through creative expression, scientific knowledge as well as the strengthening of self-confidence. The citizens of tomorrow with these characteristics can communicate, coexist harmoniously and can create a world that takes the humankind one step further.

For the 2017 trilogy, Kids University partners up with the Creative Europe Programme ARTECITYA 2014 – 2018, for a series of interdisciplinary children workshops.
