CHILDREN AND YOUTH
Children and youth are very important for Manegen and our members. The children's right to participate in the cultural and artistic life is part of the UN Child Convention. As a consequence, we work in order for children to be encouraged to have equal opportunities for cultural and artistic activities.
It is important that children and youth get the opportunity to increase their own creativity and get access to culture. Since all children attend school, the link to the schools' activites is important, and the funding possibility from The Swedish Arts Council called "Skapande skola" gives the possibility for integration of art and culture into schools' curriculums in the long run. It gives pupils greater possibilities for own creative work through professional cultural activities.
Choose circus for school projects
When contemporary circus is chosen concerning "Skapande skola"-projects the pupils get the possibility to express themselves with their bodies and to develop their creativity. Below you find artists and companies to contact!
