Poetry as a Protest - public workshop for kids

  • FIAF 55 East 59th Street, Tinker Auditorium New York, NY 10022 USA (map)

Poetry as a protest by teaching artist Amélie Gaulier part of Tilt Festival at FIAF

Kids are invited to create their own animal with the objective to choose an emotion, a protest, and to voice an opinion. 

Once upon a Forest, the Animal Spring

In an imaginative new visual art exhibition, French-Moroccan multimedia artist Yto Barrada and American designer and art educator Julie Klear invite kids to create new worlds using colorful art pieces, to transform the FIAF Gallery into a moveable visual feast.

Turning buildings into forests, or cities into flowers, kids are encouraged to play, hide, and interact with the animals and landscapes, while changing things up through words, languages, and sounds. By moving pieces around and creating original artwork, the kids will have a unique opportunity to work together and use the power of art and words to change the world!

Animal Spring was originally created as an artful card game in four languages—English, French, Arabic, and Dutch, by the Wiels Museum in Brussels.

Free & open to the public

Co-presented with Wiels Contemporary Art Center in Brussels.
