Exhibition and Atelier of the Preschools and Infant-toddler Centers
– Istituzione of the Municipality of Reggio Emilia, Italy
The Mosaic of Marks, Words, Material exhibition and atelier tells the story of research done in Reggio Emilia’s infant-toddler centres and preschools on mark making and drawing woven with narrative.
When the exhibition and atelier come to Ontario in the spring of 2023, there will be various ways to engage and participate. Please see details below about three different opportunities to experience this exhibition and atelier. More information about registration will be released in January.
The exhibition and atelier will be open to the public at no charge. Dates and times of public hours in each of the three cities to be released in January.
Private groups of up to 30 people can also book an Augmented Group Visit to the exhibition, which will include a facilitated discussion of an article that will be sent in advance and time to explore the atelier and materials with studio guides as resources. There will be a $375 fee for these three-hour group visits. This professional learning opportunity will be open to everyone, including ORA members and non-members. Registration information will be released in January. Please note, if you prefer to visit the exhibition and atelier on your own, you can visit during public viewing open hours.
Interactive Atelier sessions will be facilitated by “conductors”, or studio guides, who have been studying the Reggio Emilia Approach over a considerable period of time and have participated in professional learning with educators from Reggio Emilia. In addition to hands-on, minds-on opportunities to research combinations of mark-making tools and material supports, these sessions will also involve encounters with the exhibition. Capacity is limited to 18-20 participants, depending on the location, and registration will be through the Ontario Reggio Association (ORA) website. Cost will be $25 per participant and open to members of ORA. If you are interested in purchasing a membership, please see the Membership section of our website. Information regarding registration for the Interactive Atelier Sessions will be released in January.
