Kids Creative Lab, a journey with 1 million kids

This is the fourth year of a project begun in 2012: Kids Creative Lab, an educational project born from the collaboration between the Peggy Guggenheim Collection and OVS, dedicated to primary schools throughout Italy. This has involved millions of kids and thousands of creative workshops that have unfailingly been both original and stimulating. In 2015, the programme closed with record numbers and a vast interactive installation at the Italy Pavilion of Expo Milano 2015. The project this year is entitled C-ARTE, and bring Kids Creative Lab back to Venice, where it began, achieving an another extraordinary record for participants: 1 million children from 35,000 classes in 4,000 schools will bring their work to Venice, thanks to an important collaboration with Ca’ Foscari University, Venice, which will host the concluding exhibition from April 4 – 27. This will have the patronage of Venice City Council. Kids Creative Lab also sees the distinguished participation of Rashid Rana, world-famous artist from Pakistan. With many thousands of images of landscapes sent in by participants and following his recognizable photo-collage method, Rana will create a vast digital photo print, a single copy, inspired by the themes of the project, which will also be exhibited at Ca’ Foscari University.
