Mapping aims at creating a Map on the aesthetic of performing arts for early years (PAfEY) – children from 0 to 6 years of age – through a common field research shared by 18 partners of 17 countries: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and UK.
A piece of research on the aesthetic dimension of small children, to create a map useful for improving the quality of artistic production and research for the youngest ones. Not a Manifesto on the how-to’s of PAfEY, but a Map collecting the most significant traces left by a meticulous process of artistic research, focused on the relationship that artists establish with very young children through performing acts.
The project is centred on artistic quality and on the quality of the relationship with early years.
