1st of June 2007 - International Art Exhibition for children

The International Art Exhibition organized by School nr. 5 from Baia Mare, Romania, started as an experiment. We were curious if anyone would be interested in participating in our project. So we sent an invitation on a Romanian teachers'online forum, and on several discussion groups. To our surprise, there were almost 400 teachers who answered our invitation. These teachers are from Romania, most of them, and from England (2 schools), Sweden, Poland, Turkey (2 schools), Kuwait and Ghana (an art academy).
There are some teachers from Greece, Nepal, China, Lebanon, Palestine, Mexic, others from Turkey and other countries, who would have liked to join our project, but they considered that their pupils' art works could not arrive at our school in time for the opening of the exhibition. So, at their request, we thought about organizing the 2nd edition of this exhibition.
We think it would be interesting to find partners from other art schools from Europe and start a project with European funding. Because art is an international language and a very good tool for intercultural education.
We hope we can find the right partners for such a beautiful project.
When using the Internet to communicate, our world seems such a small place!
It's so nice to be able to talk to people from different parts of the world as if they were close, not thousands of miles away!
If you like our project, please leave comments. We need all the feedback we can get.
And maybe we can also find partners for the project.
See you online.
