In words, pictures and music, Jakob Kiørboe will present projects from Denmark, Russia and the Baltic states and describe the specific pedagogical methods applied. Kiørboe will illustrate how children can use art to reflect on their own lives and express inner hopes, dreams and anxiety. Furthermore, he will describe what pedagogical and artistic tools are necessary in order to support children and young people in such a process.
Jakob Kiørboe is a drama teacher, musician, educator and project leader. He has been a theatre director at the Theatre of Youth Creativity in St. Petersburg, and he has lead the project “Children of the Baltic Sea” where artists and children from the countries round the Baltic Sea worked together through artistic work to find new values crossing former east-west borders.
