The Children's Art Factory is a project that is organized by Cultuurcentrum Genk and FLACC every year. This spearhead project was created in 2001 and has an increased participation in art forms of underprivileged children and youngsters as its main objective. Starting from their own artistic practice, a dozen artists will work for one week with a group of children in the Children's Art Factory. The artists will introduce the children into their world of thinking and they will create art together. Last year 635 children from Genk participated in the project. The seventh Children's Art Factory will take place from 9 to 13 April 2007. The participating artists are Calogero Burgio, Olga Dengo, Samira El Khadraoui, Charlotte Lybeer, Ives Maes, Bart Van Dijck, Tom Vansant, Loreta Visic, Leon Vranken en Zhané Warren. There will be a viewing on Saturday 14 April in the afternoon, on the occasion of which the week's results will be shown to the children, parents and interested parties.
