May 16 (Saturday) – 24 (Sunday) 2015, 11am to 7pm
As part of the Peoples' Republic of Creativity during Voluntary Arts Week

Personages of Cardboardia are happy to welcome anyone who wishes to create big, perform loud and parade the streets of Derry!

If you want to learn how to create characters and worlds with cardboard or get better at what you already know; if you are looking for a powerful experience, or be a part of a large creative project and make new friends - apply below and join us at the Lab!

The Lab has two major Modules:

Module 1 - Designing costumes and objects for interactive performances

Module 2 - Street performance and communication with the public for beginners

Throughout the several days of our intensive Lab we will create a large-scale interactive space and prepare a city parade of cardboard awesomeness.

In Module 1, designers will learn basic and advanced techniques of creating costumes, decorations and objects from cardboard. The program could be particularly interesting for artists and architects, school teachers and designers.

Those who take part in Module 2 will go through the entire cycle of preparing a city event - adapting the concept to the location, preparation and management. The module is curated by a brilliant street theater director, so we especially welcome stilt walkers and other performing artists to take part. You will learn the basics of interaction with the audiences, exchange stilt walking and performing experience and get to improvise in a new eclectic team.

The Lab will end in a series of performances on 23 and 24 of May.

Participation in the Lab is free, yet the number of participants is limited. Groups will be formed following the results of online interviews.

Lab participants will need to take care of their daily expenses and costs of travel and stay in Derry/Londonderry (Northern Ireland).

We are constantly asked: "Can we visit your workshop with children to work with cardboard and make something together?" Usually we answer, that our production is private, and only adults can participate in internship projects. But you wanted it so much that we decided to open an area you can visit almost every day.

Every constructor can materialize his dreams in any building, monument, transport or personage and thus become a co-author by asking himself, how the town of his dreams looks like.

Moreover, you can bring old tiny toys, exchange with other licensed constructors and settle them in our town.

Timofey Moskovkin, the honored personage of Cardboardia at the order of Tyran is appointed to the post of the First architect of the Cardboard Town for Toys! He is to create the basic town infrastructure and help beginners to realize their timid projects!

The construction site has been working under experimental conditions and waiting for all comers from 1 April, 2015.

Only over-5 years old licensed specialists are allowed to construct. Only one specialist can work under one license.

The construction License for three hours running costs 500 rub.

The construction License for 1 hour costs 250 rub.

For groups of 10 people and more the cost of one construction License is 350 rub. for a person.

For school groups we give 45-minute classes at weekdays. In this case the License costs 250 rub, and all comers should register beforehand.
