Children's Conference

A worldwide theater project from 2014 - 2018

Description

Children's Conference

Background

What is priceless?

In response to the banking crisis, the Papiertheater ("paper theater") established a large table in public space from 2009-2013 as a forum for citizens around the world (further information: unbezahlbar-daspapiertheater.de)

In addition to the various country-specific responses, one connecting common denominator could be found: "Children are priceless - and so is their well-being".

From this perspective, the Papiertheater has developed the project CHILDREN’S CONFERENCE. For a period spanning 4 years, children and adolescents from all over the globe should be encouraged to speak their minds and thus remind of this common denominator in our complex world.

We ask children and young people about their fears and desires regarding their future lives and their demands on society. What do the children think about contemporary ecological, political and social issues? What are their ideas? What can adults learn from it?

Questionnaire

The basis of the CONFERENCE OF CHILDREN is the specially developed "questionnaire". Each child can design it individually and thus publish his or her own opinion. The Papiertheater collects all books received by 2018 in order to put them in the public spotlight at the "CHILDREN’S SUMMIT CONFERENCE" in Nuremberg on September 20, 2018.

Do you want to participate? Order the "Questionnaire" here.

Conference Theater

Deepening the process of the CHILDREN’S CONFERENCE will take place in the so-called "Conference Theater". Within three days, the Papiertheater develops a scenic play with a group of 10-30 children & young people in which the contents of the questionnaires are being staged. Through music, dance and paper art, the children and adolescents will play their topics on the stage.

The CONFERENCE OF CHILDREN intends to be a public invitation to take children's opinions seriously. It wants to empower children and teenagers to be heard.

For this reason, through the course of the "Conference Theater" children and adolescents approach adults on the street and ask them for the opportunity to write their central messages with chalk paint on their cars.

Are you interested in realizing the „Conference Theater“? Contact us!

Children’s Summit Conference

From September 20-30, 2018, the Children's Summit Conference will take place at "Straße der Menschenrechte" ("Street of Human Rights") in Nuremberg. As many children who have participated in the "conference theaters" as possible shall be invited – and universally all children and adolescents, of course, are welcome as well. The central event takes place at the "Germanisches Nationalmuseum" (German National Museum) while the further program will be developed at the "Künstlerhaus Nürnberg".

Each "questionnaire" collected during the process of the Children’s Conference will be displayed, prompting fruitful discussions. After the CHILDREN'S SUMMIT CONFERENCE, each child will be sent back their own personal questionnaire.

During the CHILDREN’S SUMMIT CONFERENCE, one task for the children will include developing and publishing a brand new "Questionnaire for adults". Linked to a specific exhibition date, the Papiertheater will then send these questionnaires to all Heads of Government worldwide who are prompted to answer the children’s questions from their individual point of view.

The project "CHILDREN’S CONFERENCE" ends after the exhibition of the "Questionnaires for Adults".

If you wish to participate in the Children’s summit conference, please contact us.
