What does peace smell like? And what does it look like? How do you create it? How to decorate it?
Working with words and the body, we will reflect on PEACE (S-POKÓJ - a room that represents peace). We will also transfer our thoughts and emotions onto the wall of the room/PEACE. In this way, we will pass them on to other festival-goers. Look out for a wall in the courtyard of the Castle during Sunday concerts.
Joanna Roszak, the workshop instructor, has been promoting the idea of peace, openness and respect through her creative and educational work for years. She is inspired by the nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize, Elise Boulding. The sociologist, born in Sweden in 1920, emphasised the importance of promoting interpersonal peace, openness and recognition of differences not only as potential sources of conflict but also as a starting point for progress. According to Boulding, peace is a hallmark of a civilised society and children, the delicate tissue of the human species, an essential link to long-term social change. The researcher argued that a respectful relationship with the planet, its water, soil and air will never be established unless "...the youngest children are taught about peace at their homes, in the yards, in the streets and at schools. We need people who know how to resolve conflicts peacefully, from their earliest memories".
During the workshops, we will acquire one of such memories.
