For the eleventh time organized Cultuurcentrum Genk and FLACC the Kinderkunstenfabriek (Children’s Art factory). This year 90 children worked together with 7 professional artists on the theme Heroes. The children were asked to think about who their heroes are, their identities and the image of heroes. The children’s heroes are surprising divers; from super hero to pop star, but some even saw their mother as a hero.
Each of the 7 artists developed his or her own workshops. After a two-day introduction the children choose the workshop for the rest of the week. The process and working step-by-step to an artistic output were central. The concept and realization of the concept was by Pierre Mertens. The participating artists were: George Blom, Mike Carremans, Nina Haveman, Yvonne Knevels, Ives Maes, Jan Marechal and Arno Roncada.
The results of this workweek can be seen during the presentation on Saturday 24 April at 14.00 at Wijkcentrum Dynamo (Noordlaan 133, Genk).
