Memories of water 2020 點亮萬盛庄—故事燈2020—水的記憶
In 2020, the senior students will build a story boat together to start the year’s cultural festival. The child will row this boat to see the city from the river.
The theme of 2020 “Memories of Water" comes from the appearance of an invisible city between the two place names, Gongguan to Jingmei. The “invisible city" refers to an irrigation system in the age of agriculture. Because of the development of the city, the river of life that symbolizes the city is hidden under the city ground.
During this year, children and their families use different ways to discover, experience and think about the transformation of the complex hydrology in this area to the past, present and future life.
We let the course also connect the emotions of grandparents and parents and children, and make the community full of emotions. In the Woodworking Maker Course, students “build a boat together" and paint community stories on the boat. In this exhibition of Treasure Rock, “Story Boats", “Lanterns in Boats", and “Lamps Telling Stories" tell the feelings and memories that are tied to the community, and let children and big friends see their hometowns with water as their memories.
Memory Of Sound 2021
Is it possible to find the common melody of the family in the songs hummed occasionally by the elders in the family? Or when a melody plays, it always brings back a special family memory! We took the children to find out these stories.
In 2021, we use our voices to evoke family memories belonging to children and elders.
Children record : the most favorite or most impressive memory of the elders. A piece of regional music or song, write down the name of the song or the melody of the piece, record it by humming or performing it down.
Let the children follow the memory of the voice to find the family memories and sweet stories hidden behind the voice. Through such learning activities, children can find the sweetness hidden in family stories with their loved ones during the festival point, let the voice string up the stories of the past, and let the children understand the past and stimulate their thoughts about the future in the process picture.
Continue the search for community stories and collect stories that belong to this area. By finding memories to connect emotions across generations, we will touch every heart in the south of the city in the post-epidemic era.
