Design March recap

3 weeks ago we took part in Design March here in Reykjavik. We thought long and hard about what to do this time. We could have displayed our fall 2015 presentation but we really wanted to do something else. The idea came up to have some artists and designers take an As We Grow garment and give it a new lease of life. In the end ten people took part, they all got a cream coloured item and were told they could do anything they wanted. The results were great and we are very thankful to those artists, they were such an inspiration to us.

Happy Summer

Today marks the official start of summer here in Iceland. Schools are closed and we celebrate, some of us even receive a little gift that has to do with summer, maybe a skipping rope or a kite.

There is also a Children´s Cultural Festival going on in Reykjavik so there is an unusual amount of activities to choose from.

 

The Festival is held now for the second time 17.-22. of April.  With almost 200 events to choose from the aim is to increase cultural interest with children.

The picture above is from the opening event where 1100 9-10 year olds danced in synchrony at the Harpa Concert Hall by the harbour.

There are so many activities to choose from, including: Lego workshop, kite factory, Biophilia music factory, Origami, Charlie Chaplin´s The Circus at the cinema and so on and so on...
