Kids' Guernica, Third Paradise Cuba, and FAO in Cuba.

October 28, 2019  The workshop "Healthy food and sustainable agriculture" was held on October 17 and 18, in collaboration between the Rebirth Embassy / Third Paradise Cuba, Kids' Guernica and FAO Cuba. The workshop took place in Casa del Niño y la Niña, in the municipality of Centro Habana, a place that hosts a workshop like this for the second time. On this occasion, approximately 50 children participated in the collective creation of a canvas that took as a reference the symbol of the Third Paradise, created by the italian artist Michelangelo Pistoletto, to discuss necessary topics as peace, food and nutritional security, food sovereignty, the importance of a healthy diet and the need to practice sustainable agriculture. Through various group dynamics, which proposed sensory, playful and creative exercises, in addition to the collective planting of a tree, the children were able to learn about these topics without neglecting artistic creation. "Our actions are our future" is one of the phrases that can be read on this giant canvas, because the work was also an action to celebrate the World Food Day, in collaboration with FAO Cuba. The canvas was exhibited on October 19, at the Festival of the Earth, an event that arose precisely as one of the agreements of a Forum celebrated by the Embassy Rebirth / Third Paradise Cuba in May 2018. The message of peace, unity, balance and harmony was clearly enunciated in this artwork of Kids' Guernica, and we wish it to be extended to the entire world.

Kids' Guernica at 1st Primary School of Istiaia in Evia, Greece

May, 2019
We read about the Kids Guernica Art Project 4 months ago and the Parents' Association of 1st Primary School of Istiaia in Evia, Greece decided to organise workshops in order to create a Guernica size painting.
We discussed what peace is and the poem "Peace" written by the famous greek poet Yannis Ritsos in 1953 served as an inspiration. Twenty-two pupils from 5 to 13 yeras old created the painting working together as a team outside the classroom. Painting and talking about peace and how our world can become better was an unforgettable experience for us all!
