Following an idea of curator Gudrun Sommer, we started contacting youth centres in Graz to inform them about our documentary film program for children and teenagers. The idea was met with great interest. We are very delighted about the fact that in this way we can reach young people outside the school context and draw their attention to the programs offered by the steirischer herbst.
In this matter, an article in the Kunstzeitung June 2012 by Uta Baier, concerning art education for seniors, inspired us to get in touch with senior centres and to present them our education program as well, as it is not exclusively dedicated for a young audience. We are convinced that education should not be restricted to students and young people only.
