Art PPP Program reached its 1000th student

Brussels, Belgium: June 11th 2009 - Since its launch, the art PPP has reached more than 1,000 children, introducing them to foreign cultures, and bringing them closer to a global citizenship. This year, we have worked together with schools from 12 countries, offering a great diversity of international exchanges with participating schools from Belgium, Canada, Madagascar, Malaysia, Mexico, Qatar, Serbia, Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka, United Arab Emirates, Ukraine, and the USA.

Schools have exchanged on a variety of subjects throughout the year, including: their dreams in "if pillows could talk", expression through art, traditional ceremonies, a portrait of me, when I grow up I want to be..., and give and take. We have also extended the art exchanges to include a new art form: video, with a common project followed by 4 schools around the theme: "my school". Students in Serbia, Mexico, Madagascar, and the USA have mounted a small video or slideshow introducing their school and school environment.

You can find those videos and photographs of 2008 exchanges shared by schools on our webpage here.

Subscriptions to NEW schools all over the world are open for the coming academic year 2009-2010. If you are a school or a teacher, please complete our participation form here.
