Not all flowers are artificial is a series of workshops focused on the essence of gardens, intended mainly for children and young people. The workshops will be led by artists, art historians and architects.
With them, the children will delve into the aesthetic concept of gardens, into the culturally specific symbolism of plant settings, and will learn about the ecological and social functions of gardens. They will experience the therapeutic role of nurturing plants, creating their own piece of paradise in the concrete jungle. Together with the artists, we will look at gardens in all their layers: including the one where we will discover mutually eating entities, with its natural cycle: where everything dies, is reborn, grows, goes wild.
Interdisciplinary experiences will translate into action: creating installations, collages and audiovisual works together with competent specialists. The theme revolving around gardens gives a wide scope for children's imagination, shaped in the post-industrial world.
