There were three days of meeting full of respect, dialogue and reflection where companies met, talked about their artistic projects, their visions about aesthetics, audiences and children's rights. As a guest Soledad Acuña, director of the Master's Degree in Creativity and Pedagogical Innovation of the Finis Terrae University, made a presentation on Imaginative Education.
The meeting was broadcast live for all interested parties from different countries, who could not be present on this occasion.
Although the Network had already held meetings on several occasions, this was the first time it opened to integrate other Latin American proposals.
The Latin American Network of Scenic Creation For the First Years has as one of its main objectives the dialogue and exchange of experiences and knowledge that allow to continue developing creative projects with sensitivity and responsibility; and that respond to the complex moment in the Latin American scene and the social urgency of attending early childhood in our countries.
