About the festival:
The 5th edition of KIDS LOVE DESIGN is a showcase of design activity aimed at the youngest of art’s participants, to be accompanied by the slogan “SEN5ES” which is also the main theme. The festival undertakings will sequentially reveal the impact of sense on design and how senses found its reflection in design and art.
The 5th edition also constitutes a continuation of the socially aware tasks expressed in the sentence: “Design and art for kids - in the service of kids”. We are about to see another opening of the project which points out the social aspect and shows how wisely-applied design and art can change the quality of young persons' lives.
Constantly the festival's aim is to make children aware of the fact that each and every object surrounding them was originally designed. From the other side, it is also our aim to make designers and artists aware of the needs and expectations of the younger viewer as far as designed objects are concerned.
