“La Grotta dei Piccoli – Creativity Workshops in Schools” is a project organized by La Guarimba Cultural Organization and funded by the call for proposals “Cinema and Images for Schools,” sponsored by the Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of Education in Italy.
The project is built on a series of workshops addressed to students aged 11 to 13 with the aim of bringing the new generations closer to the art of storytelling through animated cinema, involving them in days of workshops and screenings up to the making of short films.
The main idea of the educational project is to offer the students involved a learning platform, with the aim of developing their creativity, providing the necessary tools to move and understand the world of cultural production.
Film language education is conceived as a chance to learn about and appreciate content that is difficult to access, chosen both for its quality and because it stimulates reflection on important issues.
Through methods of non-formal education, we aim to create an interest in this art form, making young people participants in the creative process behind a film production.
