Mini Biomimicry

Together with Stichting Schoolbuurtwerk, a foundation that creates special programs to connect school kids tot their neighbourhoods, 8 primary schools from Amsterdam participated in a project to create an artwork for the Amsterdam Light Festival Illuminade walking route. The kids were given a special workshop in Hortus Botanicus where they learned all about the festival and the Illuminade theme biomimicry. After the assignment to think like nature, the kids gave their views on innovation and sustainability and on how nature can play a role in these topics. The students transformed into little artists with Mini-Biomimicry as a result.
