A call for nominations
Starting from October 2021, La Baracca, Italy, wishes to award people (artists, pedagogues, researchers, politicians, cultural operators…) or institutions that have deservingly promoted the development and dissemination, in Bologna and worldwide, of performing arts for very, very young children (0-3 years old).
The Award is dedicated to Valeria who, as artistic director of La Baracca, decisively supported the start of the project “The Crèche and the Theatre” and then accompanied it with passion for more than 30 years, as an actress and director.
The Award aims:
• to encourage the recognition of the very young child as a complete subject, in terms of understanding, emotions and expressiveness, who is interested in entering into a shared artistic relationship with the artists, the other children and the adults who accompany them, parents and teachers;
• to enhance the value of the Crèches as educational and cultural institutions, fundamental for the personal and social growth of children;
• to support the full cultural citizenship of young children and their right to enjoy Art and Culture.
