The exhibition presents selected examples from two artistic projects: “Let the Children Play” and “The Children’s Play”. What they have in common is the ambition to create a living illustration of the right to play (Article 31 of the UN Convention ot the Rights of the Child). The local involvement of children and youth supporting organisations in the project ensures that the young public involved in the projects inherits a sustainable educational legacy. Working in parallel within an intercultural exchange, local and international artists’ and cultural organisations support the setting of the project, placing value on the cultural and educational purposes.
