As part of the Kasper Kinder Kunst Festival, Eugene Quinn will lead a walk for children (+/-8 years old), looking at Seestadt from their perspective, discovering their secret places to hide away and have adventures. A second theme will be ecology and how to live sustainably for the future.
Free-range parenting is a new trend – the opposite of helicopter parents. It gives children more freedom and respect to have their own adventures, far away from controlling parents. Instead of sitting at home, because the grown-ups are scared of what might happen out in the real world, these kids decide their own destiny, with occasional guidance. Eugene Quinn spoke more about the concept on Oe1’s Leporello on 20 June. Learn more about the concept at our exciting Kasper Kinderkunstfestival, including two child-led walks.
The Kasper Fest (Kasper = Kasperl & Aspern) is designed to build community, identity, and to present progressive messages. It features parties, dance, live music, games, a free breakfast, playing up, and walks. Other groups involved in the fest include Dschungel, Klangforum, Seelab, Praterkasperl and Matthäus Bär.
