YOUTH

MACH YOUTH is the heart of the Music Art Creativity Hub, a point of encounter for all the MACH experiences, where young people of all ages gather and bring together different experiences and formations in an innovative artistic, didactical, and pedagogical process.

MACH YOUTH is an Atelier project, workshops for children and young people, that makes the Festival Musica sull’Acqua a unique experience.

MACH YOUTH proposes a new approach to enjoying and experiencing music,born out of the need to share the culture of listening, permitting the encounter of different forms of art and promoting musical education and its divulgation, always aiming for the highest level of artistic expression.

Every soul burns with a deep desire to touch the truth… but the truth cannot be imposed. Each person, however, can choose the appropriate paths along which it can be reached.

Mach Mime Coach

In Colico, every year for the last fifteen years, two weeks of Ateliers involve almost 100 youngsters from 6 to 18 years of age, giving them the opportunity to experiment and perfect, through various forms of expression, the art of listening in all its perceptive aspects, thanks to an encounter with important figures from the artistic and musical spheres.

The educational program presented in the Ateliers offers various musical and artistic genres, proposing the rediscovery of perceptive and creative abilities on diverse levels, such as auditory, gestural, conceptual, and motorial.
