Pilot project / Cultural education
Theatre Playground 2.0 seeks to bring contemporary theatre to schools all over Slovenia and engage participating pupils and teachers not only as consumers of art, but as emancipated audience and also as creators.
Contemporary theatre is brought to pupils and teachers as an independent field worth experiencing and also as a pedagogical tool.
We develop and experiment with various activities aimed at becoming regular part of the school curriculums, methods and tools.
The project entitled Theatre Playground seeks to bring contemporary theatre to schools all over Slovenia and engage participating students not only as consumers of art, but also as creative producers. The project aspires to establish art as an entity in its own right and thus posits artistic practice as an outstanding teaching instrument, liable to produce impressive results.
Sparks are representing young, not yet established artists and daring, piercing ideas of already established artists. Dedicated to flashes of the new and innovative.
The Mladibor project was devised with the aim to provide the Maribor youth with interesting artistic tools in a manner that would allow for active participation and thus encourage them to create new and innovative contents.
The aim of the Kulturstik project was to demonstrate creative processes of aesthetically somewhat more demanding and socially engaged contemporary art to teachers and students and actively involve them into these processes.
For the third year in row now Bunker has successfully concluded the project transnational learning of professional skills in the technical and production fields, organised as a part of the Leonardo da Vinci Lifelong Learning Programme: Mobility. The first project was dedicated to young theatre technicians, so in 2009 we sent two of them to a four-week learning experience at the Department of Media Assistant – Theatre and Event Technology at the North Karelia College in Outokumpu Finland. After the first successful trial we’ve expanded the project to production staff and carried out ten shorter residencies in nine EU member states, so in order to accumulate more working experience we’ve visited the Hebbel-am-Ufer Theatre in Berlin, Interdisciplinarte in Italy, Kaaitheater in Bruxelles, Artsadmin in London, Theatre Lliure in Barcelona, Relais Culture Europe in Paris, Al Kantaro in Lisbon and Rotterdamse Schouwburg, besides the above mentioned College in Finland.
In 2012 and 2013 we carried out thirteen mobility programmes as part of the third project, besides technicians and producers also actors, directors, choreographers and dancers were included in the exchanges. The guest organizations were joined by Associacio Cel.lula Sant Mori from Spain, Drugo more and Udruga Phil Stone Centar from Croatia, KRUL from Belgium, İstanbul Güncel Sanat Ütopyaları Derneği from Turkey, and by Slovenian partners Glej Theatre and En-Knap.
