It was Minimusica day last Saturday in Madrid, a fun event that every year connects great music with kids. Teach a Talent and The Adventures Archive were there teaching children all kind of worlds and creative adventures. Here you have a video of the event:
Many of the Teach a Talent volunteers that live in Madrid came to share their passions with kids.
Like Alejandra, from La Tapicera, who taught them upholstery:
Manuel from Minimum, who taught us origami:
David from Yorokobu, who gave a journalism workshop:
Ventura, who shared his passion for carpentry:
Or Yuli who talked to kids about teas and spices:
Music was the protagonist of the day but we dedicated a big space to creativity too. Kids could try some of the adventures that you can find in this blog, like ‘Ditch your brushes’:
The Worldwide Tale (we created a special story for the event and each kid wrote one page):
Or the Time Capsule (which we will bury at Retiro park in a few days):
I also had the opportunity to talk with parents and children about creativity, new ideas and the importance of changing our outdated education system.
It was such a wonderful day. I took home with me the memory of so many little faces full of wonder and joy. Thank you so much to Elisa, Maria, Miguel and all the Teach a Talent volunteers that made possible this day. Thank you to Sara for these pictures and David for the video. Thanks to Minimusica and the wonderful staff at Circo Price. And thanks to all the parents that have written to me this week with such great feedback and encouraging words. Your support means the world to me and to Teach a Talent.
Now go learn something new!
