The Energy Academy in large children’s culture project
In the autumn of 2013 Samsø Energy Academy participates in a large-scale children and youth culture project called The Art of Research in collaboration with Odder Music School and Kulturring Østjylland.
It is a project that focuses on the link between research and creativity. The goal is to challenge, develop and visualize the potential of children and young people as creative artists. This is achieved by letting children get inspired by the creative universe of research and then expressing this through visual art with the guidance of professional musicians, painters and writers.
The Energy Academy is a beacon when it comes to research within energy saving and renewable energy and was thus an obvious choice as focal point for the first phase of the project on Samsø. The visit of a Samsø kindergarten at the academy this autumn, where the children will get a guided tour and a short presentation of what goes on in an energy academy, marks the launch of the project.
The Art of Research runs over the next 1,5 year throughout the municipalities of East Jutland and ends with a big show tour. You can follow the development of the project on www.kulturringoj.dk.(only in Danish).
