An imaginary garden made by children at Emergency's "La Scelta" festival

Saturday, sept 3rd, 2022 free workshop with Remida

Fondazione Reggio Children – Centro Loris Malaguzzi and Remida will be present at Emergency Festival, that take place on sept 1st, 2nd, 3rd in Reggio Emilia. They will partecipate in activities for children, which will be in Panizzi library, where creativity will contribute to reasoning with the youngest about choosing peace.

Saturday, sept 3rd, 2022, at 10 am, Remida will propose a workshop named “Oltre il giardino. Realizzare piante materiche immaginarie, in armoniosa convivenza”. It’s an activity for children from 3 to 10 years old focused on the choice of beauty and care. In the Panizzi’s spaces will, in fact, bring to life a garden of plants made from discarded materials, in which children and adults will be able to express their idea of beauty and a project for a possible society. The installation can be visited starting Saturday afternoon and throughout the Festival. Participation is free and by registration.

It is a total endorsement of the Foundation to the cause of peace, against war by Gino Strada – says President Carla Rinaldi – the first consequence of wars is destruction of the life of civilized communities. We are here at Emergency festival with a project which is meant to be the symbol of the community life and coexistence among differences. Differences in dialogue are the force that generates life, as in a garden reminiscent of Emergency's hospital gardens in war zones"."Each day one of us can carry out choices that are very important for everyone’s life - ended Rinaldi-. The choise of Fondazione Reggio Children is to help promote quality education, especially in contexts and communities in educational poverty and distress.

Families, educators and teachers who will accompany children to the workshop are invited to partecipate at 11 am on sept. 3rd, 2022 in the Library for the detailed study “Vivere il tempo insieme ai bambini” with Franco Lorenzoni.
