Bringing culture home
V.18’s programme aims to include actions targeted specifically at today’s 11 year olds - those who were born in the year 2000 and who will be 18 in 2018. One such project could be in art literacy and involve school children from across Europe and the Mediterranean. Programmes like these would be aimed at getting children familiar with culture as part of their everyday, not something elitist or beyond their scope. By bringing culture close to children’s lives, we would hopefully get them to see all things cultural as a natural ‘home’ – an area to explore enthusiastically, for themselves, and not simply because cultural activities form part of their regular school curricula.
