SetUp always pays a specific attention to children’s involvement, welcoming them in a place specifically created for them to nourish their interest in the arts by offering creative and playful workshops.

SetUp Kinder Area is a program curated by Beatrice Calia in cooperation with Re Mida.


THE ART of Orientate oneself

The key theme of the event is ‘ORIENTATION’ or the ability to know how to steer in choosing a direction to follow. Through experimentation, listening and playing, children will be able to learn about the many aspects of orientation.
SetUp will host a giant map of the city center of Bologna enriched by some tools to guide you through the city that will host us.
Beatrice Calia together with the help of a special map will guide the young guests through the works of art that SetUp Art Fair’s galleries will show in their booths.

The sense of orientation is like a radar that joins our five senses.
Wales, dolphins, bats and migratory birds travel for thousands of miles just following their sense of orientation. Where they want to go? What they want to do? Animals do this instinctively trusting their instinct, what about us?

Tracks, twists, tangles and animated readings together with the projections of lights and sounds, conducted by ReMida’s tightrope walkers, will accompany little explorers through the discovery.
Children, there is a world full of surprises that waits for you, just bring your wonder!
