"While drawing, a child observes the world..."

This traveling exhibition is the result of an exchange between schools in the Netherlands, Greece and Lithuania. Meeting through the virtual medium of Skype, the participating children (aged 5-12, over 200 in total) sang songs in each other's language and spoke about their home.

"Friendship" was the theme chosen for the event. The children were invited to share their views about friendship in colours and images. The teachers exercised restraint while trying to stimulate their pupils to express their own thoughts without disrupting their creativity and confidence.

An important goal of the project was to expose the children to other cultures and languages. Learning languages implies more than just rendering words into a different code. It also requires a culturally sensitive touch, which is what the organizers aimed to foster.

What you see presently is a handful of those imaginative and story-telling drawings.

The project is an initiative of Litouws Cultureel Centrum
together with the European Commission in the Netherlands.
