2021 Arte Kreativo Bandabou (Kids Art&Youth Creativity)

Our Arts/Cultural tasks have already started for Bandabou countryside in Curacao. The tasks have different creative outlets- whereas the Culture of Curacao is a part of, and, ideas combined with presentations online. These are offered by non profit Funark foundation with voluntarily coaching to after school youth groups from 9 to 14 years. Adults and elders are participating in the mornings. We can drive downwards the alleys to the further away areas without free-wheeling with our engine saving gas. This partly to be thankful to mayor donation from our Samenwerkende Fonds.

Also the tools/materials to work with during this year are partly been given to all of us that reside in Bandabou. This to shape up each Art work, Installation and Story-telling inclusive touching the earth in our garden or red earth in San Pedro platform using this as clay to work with and demonstrating these with aloe as tie-dye-technique. Since we include ‘shablone’ and ‘collage’ technique, printing methods and more, the knowledge about ‘Arte Kreativo’ project has no end reaching ample themes inclusive virtual learning and presentation online, but always a new beginning.

We reside in Bandabou where big quantities after school kids and visiting Community Centers are situated and constant need for diverse creativity and to involve next to their daily tasks. It gives relaxation and good for the concentration. Funark offers to each group a 3 times per month occasion to work and 3 consequence days. In total we occupy with 4 after school and morning adult-groups once a month. We are still in need for more donations for later on monthly coming tasks which we prepare before hand. The participating groups are in Tera Kora, Soto and Barber/Wacawa areas and further researching area is Westpunt to include.
