Poesia experimental per a infants i mestres
‘Walking on the ceiling: the poetic look’ is the title of a project in which a group of second grade students of a primary school and their teachers prepare themselves during three months for a very extraordinary walk. This poetic and creative workshop is inspired by surrealist and Dada games, and OuLiPo techniques and aims to let teachers and children discover ‘new ways’ of understanding poetry. Through these creative, playful and experimental activities the participants open their senses and discover other ways of seeing and interacting with the environment. A positive response and involvement was expected from children but teachers were equally fascinated. Therefore, our aim is to look at the intersection between poetry and education in an attempt of answering why these poetic proposals from the early twentieth-century avant-garde are still considered so innovative in schools today.
