Boys and girls between the ages of 8 and 11, and then a group of 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders from Colegio San Pablo, were encouraged to take to the stage in the Children’s Room to compose a rap song together with individual words, which were using thinking about rhymes led by Nicolas Ferreira in charge of the workshop.

Rap School is a place for collective, playful and musical creativity for boys and girls of all ages. The boys played with words and shared ideas, which they wrote down in a notebook and then rapped the song together.

Tomorrow from 10.30 am in the Nursery is the turn of the Myths and Legends workshop, led by Graciela Piombo, who offers work on collective memory using the book Once Upon a Time in this Place as a trigger, from Books and Houses. In addition, this space will continue in the mornings and afternoons with stories, poetry, book launches, talks and workshops.
