Online experience for young audiences
Our Lullabies is a contemplative and interactive online piece, allowing children from 8 years old to live an innovative multidisciplinary artistic experience, exploring the themes of solitude, transmission, childhood and old age through the symbol of the rocking chair.
With so much wonderful new material still at hand, Les Incomplètes has long had a desire to explore web-based creation for young audiences. The work brings together four stories, four soundscapes and four contemplative videos by female artists, inspired by the four main themes of the Lullaby Cycle.
The centre of collaborative reflections.
Our Lullabies is also a large interdisciplinary research project, which invites contributors from the fields of culture and education, artists, philosophers, and psychologists to reflect together on the ethical and sensible address to children through the digital medium. The project is also accompanied by specialists in the discoverability of online artistic content.
Our Lullabies aims to fill a gap in the online cultural offer for young audiences, proposing poetic and contemplative works, as a counterpoint to what is mostly broadcasted by the major digital media. Our goals are to raise awareness in the community and develop a collective intelligence on the digital creations for children.
Our Lullabies received a grant from the CALQ in the Exploration and Digital Deployment program and support from the cooperative Spira.
