Events for children

Docudays UA invites children to the traditional event program DOC/SADOC. Children’s space DOC/SADOC is a specially equipped room and a program full of active and educational events for children of different ages (3-6 and 6-14), giving their parents an opportunity to watch films. The room will be open on the 2nd floor of the Zhovten Cinema (26 Kostiantynivska str.).

 

The youngest children (3–6) will be looked after by the educators from the Halli Galli family space, which is based on the principles of humanistic pedagogy. There will be free play zones for children, where they will be able not just to play, but also to construct, make art, listen to stories and tales, learn how to play new board games.

 

Children in the age of 6 to 10 can attend entertaining and educational meetings with guests of the space and take part in interesting activities, in which Oksana Kushniruk, the funny educator who is very attentive to children’s needs, will also participate with them.

 

This year, children in the age of 10 to 14 will be able to participate in the project #MyFilmAbout. Together with Daryna Fedenko, a tutor from the TV journalism studio TeenScreen, the participants will talk to residents of Podil and activists about living in the very center of contemporary Ukrainian capital. About what is hiding under Podil, about the rattle of tram rails and the melodies of student serenades. The investigation will result in a short auteur film about how ordinary people can change the space around them if they join their efforts and inspirations. The project participants will study how the residents of Podil have created a garden on a plot of wasteland. They will look into the very heart of the excavation of the ancient city. They will visit the Buro-O architectural bureau to ask about what contemporary city can look like. And they will learn about the life of the residents of Kyiv’s oldest building, constructed in 1760. #MyFilmAbout is an opportunity to see the world through different eyes. The activities will take place every day between March 24 and 29. We also invite children with developmental issues (delayed speech development, delayed intellectual development, Down syndrome, autism) to participate in the project. Register to participate in the #MyFilmAbout project at this link.

 

Another good news is that this time the space will be inclusive and open for children with special needs (delayed speech development, delayed intellectual development, Down syndrome, autism), aged 3 to 14. To make the children’s stay as comfortable as possible, we involved volunteers from social initiatives. To ensure that everyone has enough attention from our volunteers, we ask the parents to register their children beforehand at this link.
