Beursgebouw

This work of art has been re-located to Berusgebouw.

For the eighth year in a row, ‘Cultuurstation’ is going to organise a side project for primary school pupils. After the ‘Lampenkappen’ (2011), the ‘Bloemenzee’ (2012), the ‘Fladderaars’ (2013) , ‘Squares’ (2014), ‘Kroonlichters’ (2015), Cocons (2016) and last year’s Drijflanden, this year’s group 5 and group 7 pupils of forty Eindhoven primary schools, have created ‘Cocoons’.

For the eighth year in a row, CultuurStation is organising a project for pupils in primary education.  Inspired by the richly decorated ceilings of Chinese temples and palaces, the pupils create their own ceiling above the Demer by weaving strips of plastic through netting.

The last couple of years, GLOW for KIDS has turned out to be a success formula. This project not only  contributes to the creative development of children, it also offers them an extraordinary experience: discovering their own artwork amidst all the other GLOW projects in the company of parents, teachers or other children.

Participation 2018: 30 primary schools with a total of 2,050 students.

Special thanks to Loods040 for preparing the materials.

 

Cultuurstation connects primary schools in Eindhoven with other local, cultural institutions and artists to artistically inspire children.  In order to support their teachers, they developed an instruction letter how to design and create the Emperor's Ceiling. Additionally, a workshop has been given at the schools to hand over artful tips, technical possibilities and instructions on the use of materials.

The last couple of years, GLOW for KIDS has turned out to be an enormous success. The project contributes to the creative development of children but also offers them a unique experience: to discover their very own work of art in the middle of the GLOW light artworks, in the company of their parents, teachers or other children.
