 Idea : Circuit and workshops

A journey through the world of imagination of the child inspired by the door as an idea.
The door to dialogue, with its duality, its material but also conceptual quality, leaving us free to come or go, closing us in or letting us out. Rousing feelings of security or oppression, comforting or aggressive, betokening the breakthrough to freedom - or conversely the mark of imprisonment.

Children of all social, cultural and philosophical backgrounds are familiar with this phenomenon in society at a physical or abstract level. Hundreds of different doors could be painted to illustrate the associations this theme rouses in them. A door thus becomes a shared plane inviting us to reflect, dialogue - on a democratic footing, and appealing to children's' imaginations as a real concept. Other children may illustrate it through pieces of their poetry or prose.

Works of art from the Gallery plus a slide show of doors from the world over are designed to spark the children's powers of imagination.
