Did you ever want to learn how to engrave gourds? Make art out of paper? Turn plastic bottles into butterflies? Make pancake puffs? Build your own piece of Finland in Minecraft? Create a field of art flowers? Make a mysterious 3D lake? Play fado music? Cook Spanish food? Or maybe you want to learn what makes a computer work, experience German pianists playing the piano with tennis balls, watch Hungarian folk tales, partake in an art work shop inspired by Polish folklore, learn how immigration shaped America, or watch hours of exciting animated movies.
You can do all of this and much more during this year’s virtual Kids Euro Festival! From October 17 through November 29, children and their parents across the United States will be able to participate in this engaging online programming. Some events will be live and interactive, whereas others will be available on-demand. And it’s all free.
Now in its 13th year, this unique festival’s mission is to provide equal access to the European arts for American families and children of all backgrounds. This is made possible by the 27 European Union countries and the European Union Delegation to the United States in cooperation with the European-American Cultural Foundation and The Carmel Cultural Endowment for the Arts.
The goals of the festival are to:
1) Increase awareness of the exceptional diversity of European cultures among the youth of Washington, D.C.
2) Bring talented European artists to the United States to highlight the vitality of European arts through children’s entertainment
3) Create new partnerships within the educational community of Washington, D.C.
