On 23 June, Indire takes part to the event included in Venice Biennale titled “Young people voice and choice in learning environments”. The event is organised by “The Happenstance” and is promoted by the Scottish government. It will be an occasion to reflect on youths’ points of view and interpretations of wellbeing, in particular, the way in which wellbeing influences youths’ perception of school environments and how these in turn influences their hopes for the future.
The day of debate foresees the fundamental contribution of the students and the youths and is going to be focused on the designing of learning environments. The event pools together those who worked with the youths to discuss and reflect on what allows the creation of welcoming and motivating learning environments. The focus is going to be on wellbeing form the youths’ point of view, the themes to explore will range from learning in the open air to creativity and participation.
The researchers Elena Mosa, Stefania Chipa, and Silvia Panzavolta will present some of the experiences of designing and redesigning of school spaces with the participation of students and confrontation during the debate.
The Happenstance establishes a Freespace in the garden at the heart of Palazzo Zenobio, as a place to build new possibilities together for the freedoms we urgently need to claim – and demonstrating what can be built through mapping connections, bringing together needs, resources and ideas of Freespace in both Scotland and Venice. The space acts as an active archive (The Living Library of Ideas), where a team of Artists and Architects, experts in play, encourage everyone into a vital relationship with the built environment, using play as an active agent within the process of rethinking and reclaiming their Freespace. At the heart of Zenobio you will find a focus on young people, their capacities, their needs and their imagination harnessed to empower this energy in all of us. Our live programme includes animating other spaces out in the city. Likewise the Outdoor Cinema screenings focus on inspiring examples of individuals, organisations and situations that underscore this year’s Biennale Architettura theme. We have a proposition for the visitor to our garden – expect to get lucky. This is the art of Happenstance.
