In celebration of World Inclusion Day, 19 of Bright Horizons nurseries have celebrated inclusivity through their own artwork as part of the Voices of Children International Project organised by the BrightStart Foundation in Geneva.
The project aims to enable young children from across the world to express their creativity through art, and to use it to share their views on what is important to them through painting, drawing, sculpture, and photography.
This amazing project, led by academics from Australia, England, Japan, USA and Italy, inspired colleagues, and children at Bright Horizons to produce a variety of artwork around the theme of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging.
Caroline, Early Childhood Director at Bright Horizons said: “The Voices of Children is a vital project to ensure young children’s voices are heard in society, and at Bright Horizons we feel proud to be a part of this, nurturing each child’s creativity and showing that we’re interested in what they have to say. It’s wonderful to see so many nursery children get involved and are enthusiastic about the project and World Inclusion Day, I look forward to seeing them take part in more inspiring projects like this.”
The children have been creating their art in multiple ways such as paintings, drawings, clay, and salt dough sculptures. Some children have also had the opportunity to learn how to use photography as a way of expressing their voice and talking about who they are and their place in our world.
