This is an important initiative dedicated to reading and children’s creativity through a slogan, a spot and a drawing to convey love for books and reading. The main objects are:
– To stimulate in children and teens a reflection on their relation with reading, books and emotions;
– To exploit the role that school and libraries have carried out for years to diffuse the value of book and reading in young people
The initiative is part of the reading awareness campaign organized by the Association and Agency Arcipelago Onlus in collaboration with the european partners Dituria (Albania), Tabernakul (Macedonia), the municipality of Padula and the Lions Club Padula-Certosa di San Lorenzo, through the project “Readers of the future” co-funded by European Commission. It started with the competition of ideas and expressive creative actions for schoolchildren of Campania (drawing, short stories, video-spot).
The final event – exhibition of works made by pupils 6 to 14 years old and the award ceremony – took place in Padula Charterhouse on 12 May 2017 in the presence of the local and regional authorities and many guests (writers, artist, publishers) from Italy, Albania, Macedonia.
