At the festival
On the occasion of this year Girls and Boys Rights Week, Géraldine Alibeu modifies her project Le livre Tapis de l’écol for Salaborsa Ragazzi. The project will be realised in a reading and playing area shaped as a floor carpet that will highlight, through the settings of scholastic space, the various children identities that make up a class. In the classroom, the courtyards, the nap or snack rooms the girls and boys of Alibeu get together to express their thoughts and their ways of being: shy, energetic, graceful, lonely, dreamy or hyperactive. On the carpet of Alibeu there is room for everyone.
