Robel Temesgen will develop a project centered on a  process oriented dialogue with children on their dreams of a good life.  He will work with children – girls and boys – on the issue of  “what they want to be”. Interviews with the children will be made and will be documented on videos; four children will be accompanied more intensively, including visits to their homes. All children will get a costume, done by a local tailor, connected to who they want to be and produce small clay sculptures expressing these dreams. A theater play will be jointly developed and presented on the day of the inauguration of Kebreab’s sculpture.
