What is PlayArt?
PlayArt is a nationwide boost for the 0-6 age range. We build bridges and create encounters between children, daycare workers, educators, daycare leaders, researchers, students, teachers, artists and cultural mediators. Through new, close-knit communities, a research-based evidence base is created for how we can work together across professions to create the highest possible quality and inclusion when children meet local artists, cultural institutions and cultural mediators in day care.
PlayArt brings the youngest closer to art and culture and researches what the encounter with art, culture and aesthetic learning processes in everyday life means for children's play and education as well as for the adults around them. LegeKunst is a co-creative practice in close cooperation with teacher training and thus also has an impact on the everyday lives of future teachers.
PlayArt provides a skills boost for children's everyday adults through the encounter with arts and culture in everyday life. With action learning as a common method and through research created together with practice, we push the 'nursery' and get new ideas for our pedagogical practice, where we promote and create greater quality in children's play and education based on art, cultural activities and experiences.
PlayArt originates from and is led by Kulturprinsen in Viborg.
