Theater Playground 2.0 is a pilot project of cultural and artistic education for the young, which aims to integrate contemporary art and formal education through the development of learning models involving artists.
One of the activities within the project is culture camp – there will be two camps within the festival. The idea of Culture Camp comes from the redefinition of Summer Camp, only in urban instead of rural environment, and with the topic of culture instead of nature. An intensive three‑day course that pulls the children and teachers out of the school environment and immerses them into the cultural events – both creating and experiencing.
Culture Camp is a mix of workshops, discussions, performances, concerts and films, visits of cultural institutions, with professional artists as mentors. Another important element of the camp is getting to know the cultural landscape of the city, encompassing, which includes learning about everything from important institutions and architectural marvels to graffiti landscapes of individual neighborhoods and culinary offerings.
This year’s culture camps as part of the Drugajanje Festival are led by Nika Bezeljak, Teja Bitenc and Tajša Perović.
