Open Call for the “How We Are Together” Project

We invite teenagers and their parents/guardians to join the art workshops “How we are together”

Deadline is 7th of Осtober

In times of war, we especially need mutual understanding and support in our family circle, but due to constant stress and fatigue, a feeling of growing distance appears between the closest ones. Jam Factory Art Center is starting a cycle of joint art classes for children and adults, during which family members have the opportunity to spend time together and restore a warm connection.

Through artistic practices, theater activities, and games, participants will have the opportunity to establish communication in the family, to express their feelings and experiences. We will share our experience and knowledge, and support each other.

🙋‍♀️ Workshops that will be held:

  • theatrical: vocal, physical
  • artistic: drawing, engraving, photo/video/projection documentation
  • multidisciplinary: dialogue exercises, conflict resolution
  • much more

🧩 Format:

The application is submitted by a family with a child/children aged 10-13. Participation of an adult is mandatory. The maximum number of participants from one family is 3.
