Upside-Down Fairy Tales

A series of experiential workshops consisting of five (5) independent educational projects to combat gendered expectations that appear in fairy tales. The aim of the programme is for children to “exorcise” the fairy-tale expectations of the real world, to break the spell on themselves and to come out of the enchanted forest…

With the help of the children and their imagination as a magic potion, the stage is set for the creation of their own unique fairy tale: a fairy tale without stereotypes, without shoulds and shouldn’ts. In this fairy tale, the heroines and heroes can do anything.
