“Childhood’s Smile” Children’s Art Festival

The ‘Sfintii Trei Ierarhi’ Middle School, in partnership with other educational institutions in Bucharest (Middle School no.193 and Kindergarten no.111), implemented in March, with the support of the Bucharest City Hall and the Bucharest School Inspectorate, a wide-scale “Civitas” project, namely the “Childhood’s Smile” Children’s Art Festival.

The training activities and workshops for pupils, teachers and parents took place every day in several centres (for beneficiaries from 15 educational institutions), proposing a syncretistic concept integrating school subjects (scientific or humanistic) through artistic and playful teaching strategies, pleading in particular for intense support for culture in schools.

The educational project will end with a festivity that will synthesize the artistic areas that children were encouraged to tackle alongside their mentors.

Thus, the public is invited to attend a complex cultural-educational event on Sunday, March 20, at 6 p.m., at the ‘Grigore Preoteasa’ Students’ Townhall (Calea Plevnei 61). Pupils from the ‘Sfintii Trei Ierarhi’ Middle School will open the varnishing of the exhibition of traditional religious icons on glass and, alongside colleagues from other educational institutions, will give a music concert.

The gala will end with an animation theatre sketch – ‘Ulciorul,’ directed by Prof. Cosmina Dragomir. Inspired from folklore, the play represents the children’s manifesto for acceptance, inclusion, empathy, tolerance and love in a modern world in which these values are gradually disappearing, being replaced with narrow and sterile thought templates.

The show is meant to be the expression of joy shared with someone close, on a special Sunday, the Sunday of Orthodoxy.

Professors Alexandra Poenaru (contemporary ballet), Oana Benko (piano, multimedia projections), Madalina Gheorghe-Tanase (visual arts), Constantin Raileanu (chorus, canto, percussion) and Cosmina Dragomir (shadow theatre scenography) cooperated on putting together the festivity’s concept.
