Events for children and teenagers

Free Entrance

Let’s be honest: not only little kids, but teenagers, too, have long been spending time at DOC/SADOC. And for the whole six days during the spring break, no less. So as we actively expand its age limits, we feel the need to change the name of the space to DOCU/CAMP. It will be open every day between March 21 and March 26 from 3 to 9 pm and is located on 25 Mezhyhirska str. at Vali Kotyka Children's Library, an inclusive space comfortable for everyone eager to join. Meet the detailed announcement of the events in the updated space for children aged 3 to 14.

 

Professional childcare for kids aged 3 to 6

Entertainment and educational events for children aged 6 to 10

Documentary film and animation studio for teenagers aged 10 to 14

 

As usual, we will start with the little ones, children aged 3 to 6. Teachers from the Mudrahelyk Ukrainian Children's Centre are going to work and play with them for the second year in a row. With the teachers, who are inventive and attentive to the needs of every kid, the youngest visitors will feel happy and cozy, just like at home. So you will be able to fully enjoy watching documentaries or attending other festival events.

 

Children aged 6 to 10 will have a chance to participate in an intense programme of workshops and other activities organized by community, cultural and art organizations. The main co-participant of all the events will be Tetiana Zhuriy, a children’s teacher and handmade master. You can find the detailed schedule of the events below.

 

The children will also have an opportunity to try their hand at interactive art, creating constantly shape-shifting pictures out of the many magnetic painting elements of the art game Naumenko Stories.

 

Another special surprise has been prepared for the children by the author of the famous “Goose”. 

 

This year, we are launching not one, but two courses for children aged 10 to 14: a documentary film studio led by Anna Korzh, Oleksandra Lunina and Anna Lysun; and a documentary animation studio by Ridni Animation. Since only a limited number of children will be able to participate in them, we have opened the registration and expect your filled-in applications until 18 March. Each child can participate in the work of one or both studios, if they choose to. The work of both teams will result in videos which will show how teenagers themselves see their own rights.

 

The DOCU/CAMP space is inclusive. Ramps have been installed at the entrance and inside the updated Valia Kotyk Children’s Library, which will become our home for the festival period. The bathroom has also been properly equipped. Volunteers from social initiatives will also help make the children’s stay as comfortable as possible.

 

We remind you that the parents of the youngest children will find a cozy place to rest or feed their kids here. The space has a mini-kitchen to warm up food and a diaper changing table.
