MIND MOSAIC-MIND YOUR RIGHTS and TO WRITE THE HUMAN RIGHTS is to rethink the people’s social role and their participation to create a harmonious life between beings and the world. Through art, its purpose is to raise awareness of the rights and duties of human beings among themselves and for the earth. This project is accessible to all those who, by their enthusiasm and philosophy of hope, wish to become project leaders by sharing it and creating it with their friends, community, responsible institutions, teachers of their children’s schools, and collectives.
Why Greece ? We made a partnership with the GEF – Generation Europe Foundation, which has established a network of partners across the 27 European countries. Together, to further develop our methodology, we responded to the request of the European Commission, to expand our Pedagogical Kit and the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, through art with GEF network in France, Belgium, Czech Republic, Estonia, Ireland, Greece, and Romania.
This project teaches the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, through our Pedagogical Kit. It has reached 237 schools, 583 teachers, and 11300 students in these 7 countries.
MIND MOSAIC-MIND YOUR RIGHTS is designed as 2 distinct and complementary projects:
1-The paper workshop:
allows you to work with a large number of participants at no cost, as you only need paper and pencils. In Greece, 60 schools and 2,482 students and 176 teachers participated. An inter-school competition identified 3 winning schools to co-create a perennial artwork with Greek artist Kallia Kouva. See our pedagogical kit available in free access here.
2-Workshops and creation of the 2 permanent public artworks
We organized three 4-day workshops with the painter Kallia Kouva. Together with the students, she created three large paintings with Mondrian-style painting spaces, opened to student’s creativity, and where they inserted their understanding of the 6 themes of the Charter. Information available upon request by email.
