Kunstendag voor Kinderen
Kunstendag voor Kinderen (Day of the Arts for Children) is a unique event during which children can experience a variety of cultural activities from different disciplines. Hundreds of museums, theatres, dance and theatre companies and other cultural institutions open their doors specifically for children. The event is organized by the Flemish Authorities and takes place every year throughout Brussels and Flanders.
In 2015, children between 9 and 12 years old could discover the language of movement and the universe of Peeping Tom. Choreographer Franck Chartier and dancer Brandon Lagaert organized a dance workshop which centered around how children see the world of adults. Every action was also driven by their fears and dreams. In addition, the workshop was a first preparation for Kind, the third and final part of a family trilogy that Peeping Tom is currently working on.
The workshop during Kunstendag voor Kinderen was organized in collaboration with choreographer Seppe Baeyens from the Brussels’ dance company Ultima Vez and was also visited by the Flemish Minister of Culture Sven Gatz.
The next edition of Kunstendag voor Kinderen is scheduled for Sunday, November 19th, 2017.
