Workshops for Dutch children and children of Refugees. Arts brings them together!
The organization "Productiehuis Plaatsmaken" developed together with 16 artists a series of works especially for children around the theme "refugees". These works aim to
help children to deal with this sensitive topic and encourages open dialogues.
Besides exhibitions (only for children) in several museums, this project called "Art in your Room", included the production of a coloring book and art workshops. The idea behind the workshops was
to create understanding among Dutch children and children living in a refugee camp. The workshops were given in the museums and in refugee camps and the children drew paintings for each other.
The Royal Talens Foundation donated the material needed for the workshops and sets of crayons to be handed out to children of refugees together with the coloring book.
