Mapping is an artistic research project focused on creating a sensory-based relationship with very young children, from 0 to 6 years, through performing arts. In particular, it explores the idea of “children-spectators of today and not only of tomorrow”.
A process full of open questions to start to map the aesthetic dimension of very young children, trying to detect the tracks, the many aesthetic moments, that children reveal during the artistic relationship and the underlying reasons.
The research on the Map will relate all project activities:
The partnership of Mapping, spread across the entire territory of the European Union, involves 18 partners from 17 European countries.
