Junior

With the Junior program, C/O Berlin offers children the opportunity to playfully become acquainted with photography, design and architecture, to train their visual perception and to creatively put their own ideas into practice. An inherent part of the expert-run, pedagogically supervised workshops are the visits to the studios and offices of the creative disciplines. In this way, the 6 to 14 year olds can further develop their social competencies under artistic guidance. Junior supplements C/O Berlin’s lively and diverse program by making an important contribution to visual education.

In workshops lasting several days, the youths, aged between 14 and 17, will not only acquire specific knowledge but will also be able to train their perception and their own creative approach.
