The participatory art project within the OPEN SPACES 800 programme for school pupils
MY SPACES 008 is aimed at young people and consists of the so called 8-Board Project.
MY SPACES 008 for pupils:
The PLANET BOCHOLT experiment is realized with young people. Bocholt schools were invited to participate in the art project MY SPACES 008.
MY SPACE – MY PLANET BOCHOLT – MY UTOPIA:
Topics of OPEN SPACES 800 include:
- What does the city mean to me: home, place of living, place of learning, place of work?
- Ideas for the future of the European and border city of Bocholt
- How to make a city liveable despite a pandemic – despite distance rules, playground bans, visitor restrictions, money constraints…
- What is the importance of humanity and solidarity
The 8-Board project:
8 groups of pupils from 8 schools were allowed to artistically work on 8 square wooden boards measuring 800 mm x 800 mm. Thanks go here to Thomas Venhorst, who sponsored these 8 boards.
On the boards, pupils were able to realize their artistic, visionary, intercultural ideas on MY SPACE – MY PLANET BOCHOLT – MY UTOPIA together:
As drawings, paintings, photographs, collages as 3D built miniature models.
On 13 September, the finished 8-board artworks will be collected from the schools and taken to the exhibition venue. The SSK has kindly made the foyer in the new savings bank building available for this special exhibition.
