WORKSHOP “SMART KIDS – THINKING MUNARI ”

MODERATION : YAFFA GAON, ISRAEL

The second day of the workshops started with something completely new and never before shown
in Serbia – the cutting edge workshop “Smart Kids – Thinking Munari” about the famous Bruno Munari and his creative methodology. The energetic and tireless Yaffa Gaon, a fine Israeli intellectual who had the opportunity to work with Munari for 20 years, brilliantly moderated this workshop, introducing more than 60 participants to the design and creativity as a way of thinking.

School principals, teachers, educators from Belgrade’s schools, kindergartens and children creative centers for a moment went back to their childhood, making charming sculptures with spaghettis, marshmallows and colorful ribbons. The highlight was when the group of 20 kids joined the grown- ups, all together drawing, gluing, and thinking creatively! Yaffa proved what is written on her card: The one that can do anything!

Been a few weeks after the end of the Belgrade Design Week, but in my mind is still alive all the energy collected in the three very intense days in Belgrade. I enthusiastically accepted the invitation to the BDW 2010 but, honestly, I did not expect to live a so unique experience: BDW Conference is an incredible concentration of creativity, freedom, passion and feeling that involves all participants. Amazing the people of the organization guided by the genius and craziness of Jovan!
