Workshop - (HI)STORY OF A CENTENNIAL

The Great Unification was a significant event in Romania’s history, but what do our kids make of it today? Patricia Nistor takes over the challenge of sparking the kids’ curiosity about the big events that took place around December 1st 1918 and in the following century. A kids-size non-formal history lesson, completely removed from dusty old books, this interactive workshop is set to provoke their imagination. Through a specially-curated set of archive images and activities, Patricia guides them to discover historical stories and key moments.  

Patricia studied art history in the UK and is now doing a research masters in arts and culture at Leiden University. Because of her interest in making big stories accessible, during last year’s Spotlight she held a presentation about the history of Romanian children’s cinema.
