Trees of Wisdom develops projects on citizenship, diversity and community art.
For the Caravan of Unity we found a school with children from several countries.
Painted beauty! …… the project we register for the Caravan of Unity is a description of beauty seen in Gouda ……!
Children of 3 grades will paint pictures of nice experiences seen on their way towards school, or
when leaving school for home. They unite the present, with past memories of nice places seen in their former home countries.
In a video they explain and express their appreciation for what they painted. By showing this video
to those schools interested in seeing it, the children with a Dutch background will see their city throughthe eyes of the refugee children. By seeing what is beautiful abroad, they can experience the ‘Caravan of Unity’.The video will carry English and German subtitles.
