Open Call Labo Curatorship 2023 (Closed)

Musica, Impulse Centre (BE)

In 2023, Musica is organising the biannual “Labo Curatorship”, bringing together experienced coaches with a diverse group of creatives. During the Labo, Musica and a guest coach bring guidance in artistic approach, business, production and communication to the participants. The new curators/co-creators then take part in Babelut Parcours @ASTRA.

About Babelut Parcours

Babelut Parcours is a musical journey of discovery for children aged 0 to 5. Artists and musicians take children and their parents/carers on an experiential journey packed with musical interaction, musical theatre and sound installations. Thus, all the senses awakened and young ears set on edge with sound and music.

This year’s theme ‘@ASTRA’ focuses on music from space.

Sound garden @ASTRA

Labo Curatorship offers everyone who works professionally with very young children (pedagogical coaches, child supervisors, kindergarten teachers,…) and likes to get creative, the opportunity to look behind the scenes in the creation of the new Babelut Parcours @ASTRA. Participants will also have their own impact on the accompanying sound garden, a tangible environment in which the very young can discover materials and sounds through play.

The project aims to introduce participating artists to musical development for very young children and be involved in the artistic development of the sound garden. They will gain an insight into curatorship, which means getting a glimpse into the process of curating artistic works.

Babelut Parcours is a concept of Musica Impulse Centre.
@ASTRA is a co-production of Musica and C-TAKT.
