Tomorrow Friday 29th July, starting at 4 pm, the exhibition of the works accomplished throughout the month of July by the 60 children participating in this year’s fourth edition of the Summer Urban Camp Jugamos, Creamos [We play, We Create] opens to the public. This event has been organised by LABoral, in collaboration with El Bibio Infant School and Radio Television of the Principality of Asturias.

The show has been set up in the classrooms at MathsLAB of the Art Centre where the screening of the experimental animated film created by the participants, under the guidance of Asturian artist Cristina Busto, will also take place. In achieving this, the most traditional animation techniques, shadow play and stop-motion combined with video installation and acting were drawn on, using the ideas of the children themselves.

The exhibition, which was designed, curated and assembled by children from three to ten years old, will stay open until Friday 5th August.

In the evening, at 5 pm, a new session of ElectroKinder will be held for all the participants, their families and teachers. ElectroKinder is a pioneering project designed by Asturian artists Las CasiCasiotone taking place at LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial in Gijón. The initiative has educational and raising awareness objectives, aiming to improve family and alimentary habits in a decontextualised way, recreationally and creatively through audiovisual art - the driving force for the work-life balance of family leisure time.
