Art and Pedagogy

Can art change society? Can we think of a better world where the artifice is in harmony with Nature?

As an ambassador of the Third Paradise by Michelangelo Pistoletto,

Alessia Siligardi has founded ArPe (Art and Pedagogy) with the aim to connect art, in all its forms, to education. She works with children and adults of all ages about expressive languages and uses especially waste materials.

On May, 23 2016 she proposed a workshop at the “Cooperativa L’Ovile” in Reggio Emilia to show the artistic practice of Michelangelo Pistoletto, especially the Third Paradise symbol, for thinking and drawing a better world where Artifice live in respect with Nature. In addiction to that she offered educational workshops for active involvement of the senses using scrab materials of daily use. “Cooperativa L’Ovile” works with disabled people to promote their social integration and rehabilitation.
