Where children and adults meet and exchange culture

Children playing and collaborating protagonists in the society?

We could not do exactly that week full of exhibitions, video, theatre, meetings we would have liked, but we started with those who will be present and also with those who follow us from afar, a series of collaborations between local realities and other partners in Italy, Serbia, Spain, United States, Latin America. This is being designed specifically for the foreseeable future. From the small room of a small cooperative in the suburbs of Brescia...

Today, children play and their naturally "cooperative" action in spontaneous activities - rediscovered, re-launched, saved from social disintegration and "recognized" by adults - can, with active use of technology, leading directly to the production and sharing of information, locally as worldwide. Besides the forced competition and rampant consumerism, we can restart from the people and their real lives, perhaps to find a different harmony among people and with nature.

From children and acting in collaboration, a possible guidance for the future of all?

A possible answer to the cultural and market stereotypes
