May 31, 2019, Bali – Join us in Bali in a fun and ‘Hands-On!’ exhibition to celebrate children’s creativity while promoting an environmentally conscious lifestyle.
20,000 plus used bamboos and Teakwood off-cuts, 100s used boxes and old T-shirts are part of ‘Hands On’! Charcoal For Children (CFC) 2019 exhibition at CushCush Gallery, opening its doors on 31st May 2019 in Bali.
Involving 4 architects and designers, 25 local volunteers and 110 children of Bali, Hands-On! exhibition is the culmination of Charcoal For Children 2019, a community-based creative program for children jointly presented by LagiLagi and CushCush Gallery. It is a free workshop for children where children get to meet with people from creative industry such as artists, designers, architects, and creative communities, to collaborate together using various off-cut materials and share their experience. In CFC workshops, children can play, learn, and explore through art and creative learning.
“We’re very excited to see the results of everyone’s efforts,” Suriawati, one of the co-founders of LagiLagi explained. “Both the children and the architects & designers worked hard to make their ideas come to life during the workshops, and we think others should see it too.
Annually hosted at CushCush Gallery, CFC uses LagiLagi DIY charcoal as a medium for expression and creation of different forms of creative works, responding to different theme each year. For Charcoal For Children 2019, the theme is ‘Hands-On!’.
In CFC2019: Hands-On!, multi-disciplinary architects/artists duo: Venty Vergianti + Maria Yohana Raharjo, esteemed designer Benson Saw & DesignStream, and award winning designer-maker Budiman Ong are on-board, each designing a modular system from material off-cuts, to engage children in experiential workshop sessions that are based on meaningful hands-on approach, with design and architecture construct in mind.
Their collaborative creations come together in CFC2019: Hands-On! exhibition that invites public to come and play, experience and re-look, re-think and re-do! Everyone is invited and welcome! Come and celebrate the freedom of playing and making things with our hands by coming to ‘Hands-On’! exhibition. Opening night on Friday 31st of May 2019 at CushCush Gallery, Bali. Doors open at 6pm. The exhibition will be running from 1st June until 31st July 2019.
New educational ‘Hands-On’! Play Kits designed by the 4 invited architects and designers for their respective CFC creative workshops will be launched at the exhibition opening night. Collaborative artworks by artists and children from previous session of CFC will also be exhibited and sold to raise funds for future CFC program and LagiLagi projects.
