Eco-Workshops for children with the Mayak School

05/02/2019 - 05/05/2019
12 PM – 7 PM Pavilion

May 2–5, 12 PM – 7 PM

During the first May holidays, the New Holland Island Pavilion will host a series of Eco-Workshops — children’s master-classes focusing on the theme of reducing urban waste, which have been put together in collaboration with the Mayak school for the creative industries. Over the course of the master-classes, teachers will discuss ecological problems and, together with the children, endeavour to find solutions using tools from a range of disciplines, including music, design and illustration.

The master-classes are designed for children aged 6 and above, without parental accompaniment. Participation is free of charge, but places are limited, so please book in advance (link in Russian).

2 May, 12 PM, 1 PM, 2 PM, 3 PM, 4 PM, 5 PM, 6 PM

Music Workshop

Workshop participants will learn how to make music using indoor plants. Anyone who wants to can put together their own group, give it a name and then compose and perform a two-minute piece of music. All participants will receive a seed-bomb to plant in the city.

Curators: musicians from the group Playtronica

3 May, 12 PM, 1 PM, 2 PM, 3 PM, 4 PM, 5 PM, 6 PM

Startup Workshop

Participants in the masterclass will hear why it is so necessary to reduce waste, and the children will work with the workshop curator to devise a prototype for a mobile app that can help to resolve this global problem. The ideas from the sessions will be posted on the School’s social media channels.

Curator: Mikhail Shishkin, founder of the Shishki design agency

4 May, 12 PM, 1 PM, 2 PM, 3 PM, 4 PM, 5 PM, 6 PM

Graphic Design Workshop

These masterclasses are dedicated to acquainting participants with graphic design and printing. The children will familiarise themselves with the solutions proposed in the workshops from 3 May, and will design logos for the mobile apps using items from nature: leaves, fruit, vegetables. Each participant will print out their logo in acrylic paint on a bag which they can take away with them.

Curator: Mikhail Shishkin, founder of the Shishki design agency

Comics Workshop

Having heard about the problems facing the environment, participants will be introduced to the comics genre and will each draw a one-page comic on the theme of reducing waste. The results will be bound into a small book which every participant can take away with them in printed form.

Curator: Vladimir Lopatin, illustrator and comic book writer
