Wish-Mi: Workshops for children and teens about the future of Milan

Date : 03/01/2022
Location : Milano

Wish-Mi. At the Civic Aquarium, children and teenagers can participate in creative workshops about the future of Milan.

Learn a new expressive technique and share your passions and ideas for the future of Milan. This is the goal of the free workshops for children and teenagers scheduled for January 22nd and 29th at the Civic Aquarium.

The two events are dedicated to young Milanese aged 16 to 17 and 11 to 12 to initiate a creative dialogue that stimulates the observation of Milan from multiple angles and recognizes girls and boys the role of active actresses and actors in the area.

During the first workshop, which will take place on 22 January from 10 to 13 and 14 to 17, via Gadio 2, communicative t-shirts will be made using lino print (intaglio and printing with linoleum). Thus, representation and printing techniques will be used to explore one’s imagination and give shape to one’s ideas, beginning with questions of a political, historical, moral, and social nature that are particularly close to one’s ideals and interests. Milano Restaurant will provide lunch, and each girl and boy will receive a personalized t-shirt and a souvenir photo.

To participate, you must submit an online application by filling out the form at the link by January 12th. A total of 30 participants between the ages of 16 and 17 will be chosen.

The second workshop, which will take place on January 29 from 14:30 to 18:30, will focus on the creation of “paper paintings” using papercuts (creative paper carving). Milano Restaurant will provide a snack, and boys and girls will receive their paper creations as well as a souvenir photo. To be considered, applications must be submitted by January 19th by filling out an online form at the link. A maximum of 30 participants aged 11 to 12 will be chosen.

The workshops are organized by the research group DCxW (Design of Communication for Welfare) of the Department of Design – Politecnico di Milano and are part of a series of meetings for boys, girls, girls, and boys aged 0 to 18 as part of the Wish Mi project. The Milan Polytechnic Foundation, Milan Polytechnic – Department of Design, Catholic University of the Sacred Heart of Milan – Research Center on Intercultural Relations, ActionAid International Italia ONLUS, and ABCittà Social Cooperative Society ONLUS are partners in the Milan Wellbeing Integrated System, which is led by the Municipality of Milan. The project is funded by the European Urban Innovative Actions initiative and aims to create a system that guarantees girls and boys equal opportunities.
