At Autostrada Hangar, a workshop was held with children aged 8-12 with a focus on environmental protection. During this workshop, the children explored the work of Agnes Denes "Sunflower Fields" which is located near Autostrada Hangar in ITP. They created and drew their own sunflowers. The teacher of this workshop, Teuta Kelmendi, discussed with the children about the work of Agnes Denes, informing them about the importance of protecting the environment and ways of taking care of it. At the end of the workshop, the children were given sunflower seeds, so they can plant their own sunflowers in the right season and contribute to green spaces.
The sunflower has different meanings in different cultures, but the beauty and positive energy that this plant exudes has inspired the artist Agnes Denes to send us a message: We all can be like sunflowers, grow, nourish, endow others with our richness, turn to the sun, then reflect its warmth to all living creatures.”
After the workshop, the children visited the work "Play Time" by the School of Mutants, where they were introduced to the content of the work and had fun.
We thank all the children for their participation and curiosity shown during the activity.
We are also very grateful to ITP Prizren for the partnership in this work.
The workshop was supported by UNDP
