Books for looking 23.04.16–17.04.17

Books for looking is an interdisciplinary project devoted to picture and illustrated books. It is a joint initiative of psychologists, pedagogues, artists
and librarians from Wrocław, which is intended
to sensitise both children and adults to the world
of images. The closest one, not only physically, is
the world of meanings locked inside a book. By establishing a space for exchanging thoughts
and experiences, we would like to unlock it together.

As part of interdisciplinary actions:

▼ we run cyclical open meetings: lectures, open-air meetings, exhibitions and workshops;

▼ we create picture and illustrated book sections
in libraries at universities, schools and kindergartens;

▼ students reach hidden nooks and crannies
in Wrocław with a box of books, a playground
and an idea for a workshop
