Events for children

Docudays UA invites children to the traditional program of DOC/SADOC events. The DOC/SADOC children’s space is a specially equipped room and an intense program of active and educational events for children of different ages (3–6 and 6–14) which gives their parents the opportunity to spend time watching films. The room will be located in the Library of the Future near the Zhovten Cinema, on 25 Mezhyhirska str. The space will be open every day between March 23 and 28, from 3 till 9 p.m.

 

For children between the ages of 6 and 14, it’s a great opportunity to be immersed in the film festival atmosphere, and for the younger visitors (3–6) it’s a chance to spend some fun and educational time while their parents enjoy the festival films.

 

DOC/SADOC for the youngest audience is a large space where parents will be able to find a cozy place to rest or feed their child, as well as a mini kitchen for warming up food and a baby changing table.

 

Children aged 3 to 6 will be taken care of by teachers from the Mudrahelyk Children’s Center. The kids will have drawing, clay modelling and handmade art classes, they will be able to read books and play all kinds of games. If they want to, the children will also have a chance to participate in the workshop program. F

 

or 6-to-10-year-old children, we’re organizing a varied program of workshops and conversations with the guests of our space. Together, we will talk about online safety, do a quest around the library, create a 3D hologram by ourselves, and construct a camera obscura. We will learn how to protect our personal data and analyze what kind of passwords are actually secure. We will develop our critical thinking skills, meet a cyber police officer, create a real animated film from clay, talk about how to oppose bullying and define our own boundaries. The children will be accompanied throughout all the classes by Anastasia Li, who is fun and always attentive to children’s needs.

 

For six days, teenagers (10-14) will be making #MyFilmAbout together with tutors from the Mediana Center for Media Literacy. “What can I share with the world?” will be the key question in our research for the #MyFilmAbout project this year. Together with the participants of the workshops, we will examine the streets and the people through the lens of our smartphone cameras. We will also try to determine where the limit is, what can be posted online and what can’t. We invite young bloggers who want to tell the world about themselves and their lives to join us. You can register to participate in the #MyFilmAbout project here.

 

This year, the DOC/SADOC space will meet the needs of children with disabilities. The entrance to the library and its rooms are equipped with ramps, the bathroom is also properly equipped. Volunteers from social initiatives will help to make the children’s stay as comfortable as possible. We are asking parents of children with special educational needs to register them at this link, so we could have enough volunteers to take care of every child.
