Unicef Project: School for Africa

This week on Monday February 14th, 2011 a student exibition will be opened. Students of the Institute of Design and Arts present their creative look at what children in African schools can produce themselves, from natural materials or from recycled materials. The school project was inspired by the UNICEF project Schools for Africa, which aims to help 8 million children to come back to school in 11 African countries.

The exibition „Design for UNICEF – Schools for Africa“, will take place in the shopping park Avion in Bratislava from February 14th to 20th, 2011 and will present term works created by students of The Institute of Design and Arts, Faculty of Architecture STU. The main idea was to invent items that could be used by children in schools in Africa for learning or leisure activities, and children should ideally managed to make them by them selfs – from raw materials or common available secondary materials.

The project was set as term work and involved 25 students of the second year with the educational leadership of Mgr. art. Eva Vitkovská and Ing. Tomáša Nagy, ArtD. The exhibition presents selected works – a total number of thirteen objects.

You will find out how is it possible to convert an old canister into a school bag, that you do not need wool for knitting, you will also see hanging swings made from plastic bottles and an African badminton created by future Slovak designers.
