Throughout the last weeks of December we present a mini-exhibition with publications made by kids during the Page of Possibilities workshops in 2021.
The Page of Possibilities workshops introduced children (ages 4-12) in a playful manner to the practice of self-publishing. They discovered the colourful and creative world of artist books and learned how to make their own small publication.
Page of Possibilities was inspired by the pedagogics of Célestin Freinet, who started the l’École Moderne in France in 1947. In his modern schools the emphasis was on children-led education: a printing press was placed in the middle of the school and children shared their experiences and thoughts via self-made books and pamphlets.
The works will be showcased in the window of our bookshop at Boekhorststraat 126 until 7 January 2022. You can pass by to view them from the street whenever you like.
