The main programme concept of Sladovna Písek is “A Playful Gallery,” which links the theme of book illustrations to what is crucial for the development of every child’s play.
This conference will focus on the importance of informal education and hands-on principles in the 21st century. Together, participants explore similarities and divergences between so-called Eastern and Western European approaches and dive into pedagogical, psychological and cultural aspects of informal education.
