This workshop is available in Dutch language only. Please find the Dutch description of the workshop in the NL version of this website.

During Staalplaat Soundsystem performances and installations it became apparent that children were fascinated by Staalplaat’s way of playfully misusing everyday household items. This lead to the idea of giving special workshops for kids. The workshops aim to stimulate and explain the creative process, clear techniques and simple tools are provided while participants are being guided in the design and realization of their unique ideas. Great care is taken not to influence the children’s creative choices, instead
focusing on inspiring confidence in their own individual concepts and decisions. These workshops encourage understanding that “anything is possible.” Instead of discussing “if” something can be done, the focus is always on “how” an idea can be realized, allowing exploration and discovery. By keeping the workshop a “kids only” event, the children take a leading role, resulting in impressive and various creations. This event marks the first time a Kids Cobra workshop is presented in the Netherlands.
