Design Workshop: "Poetry and Protest"

Part of TILT KIDS FESTIVAL 2018

As part of Tilt Kids Festival 2018

Join us at FIAF for a very special workshop on March 16 at 4pm and visit the imaginary exhibition Once upon a Forest: the Animal Spring.

Poetry as Protest

Saturday, March 17, from 1–2pm
Kids are encouraged to create their own slogan, protest poster, catchphrase, or mantra.

About the exhibition

In an imaginative new visual art exhibition, French-Moroccan multimedia artist Yto Barrada and American designer and art educator Julie Klear invite kids to create new worlds using colorful art pieces, to transform the FIAF Gallery into a moveable visual feast.

Turning buildings into forests, or cities into flowers, kids are encouraged to play, hide, and interact with the animals and landscapes, while changing things up through words, languages, and sounds. By moving pieces around and creating original artwork, the kids will have a unique opportunity to work together and use the power of art and words to change the world!

Animal Spring was originally created as an artful card game in four languages—English, French, Arabic, and Dutch—, by the Wiels Museum in Brussels.


Co-presented with Wiels Contemporary Art Center in Brussels

Tilt is made possible thanks to the support of Air France and Delta Air Lines, FACE Foundation, Florence Gould Foundation, Howard Gilman Foundation, Institut Français, the French Ministry of Culture, SACD (Société des Auteurs et Compositeurs Dramatiques), NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, Jacadi, and La Roche-Posay.
