Colour mixing - Hope, Education, Arts, Creation
Summary of project results
The purpose of the Color Mixing Programme was to implement regular art programs organized for disadvantaged young people in North Bácska, thus deepening and consolidating intercultural dialogue between Roma and non-Roma communities. The color mixing sessions took place in three settlements: Baja, Szeremlje and Sükösd, on the occasion of professional excursions by touching the cities of Budapest, Pécs, Gara and Dávod. The project was designed for young people with diverse artistic activities in the following areas: Roma art and culture, graphic arts and painting, sculpture, archaic photography, wood carving, handicrafts (leather preparation, claying, chasing, basket weaving), folk dance, drama circle, tale therapy, outdoor and indoor environment (folk playhouse and self-knowledge), media circle. The series of programmes took place at seven locations, involving over 400 children. From the works created during the sessions, the project promoter organized a closing exhibition and lecture where children having participated at folk dance and dramatic circles presented an amazing show. Paintings, graphics, etchings, prints, historical figures and Catholic Saints depicted in the project implementation, pictures of the photography circle, a copy of the ceramic relief, handcrafted portraits were exhibited in the István Nagy Gallery at the closing event. At the exhibition, many local and rural schoolchildren could admire the children's creations and take part in museum lessons targeting the acceptance of diversity, the common language of the various branches of arts, and the fact that segregation and discrimination do not lead anywhere.
