English summary

Sparklab art & philosophy creates space and resources for children from the primary school to philosophize about philosophical questions from their own experience and explore these creatively in different ways, including stop-motion animation film, drawing, painting and drama.

The combination of philosophy and creative expression occurs in a playful way; a cyclical process of experiencing and thinking. Creative expression is complementing philosophical reflection; wonderment is sought after through a combination of words and images. The core of this philosophy of children is “thinking about thinking” and combined with the creative assignments that are given to children, a variety of possibilities for expression are offered, both for the more verbally-and the visually oriented thinkers among the children.
