Youth conference at «Piedestal»
There was a Youth conference held with the participation of pupils of the Waldorf schools of Ukraine near the sculpture «Piedestal» on Friday, October 30. The conference gathered about 30 pupils of 9-11 forms and several students.
The organizers of the Youth conference were «Cultural Center in Otvazhnykh», headed by Andrii Zhyltsov and the Art workshop «Bloom».
Young people met at the sculpture to discuss modern art objects in the city, raised the issue of creative realization of young people, discussed human identity and self-perception. The conference participants had an opportunity to talk to Andrii Liubov, the author of the sculpture «Piedestal», and ask him questions about creation and idea of the work.
Later the company was also joined by Volodymyr Sushkov, the author of the idea of a sculpture and the chairman of the Kyivskyi District Administration concurrently. «Each person is a unique image of art. And this sculpture is a reminder to everyone that you are creators, you create yourself», – he noticed in his speech to teenagers.
After all the welcoming words, a short lecture on the sculpture and a dialogue of youth with invited speakers, the guys each had an opportunity to stand on the «Piedestal» and share their thoughts on three issues: Who am I? What do I want? What do I want for others? Each participant of the conference could be a speaker and feel like the main work of art.
At the end of the meeting at the «Piedestal», young people received a small bonus: an author’s tour to another art object of Kyivskyi district – the sculpture «Bloom».
