INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROJECT

Objective of the exhibit

The best way to develop the ability of children to learn is through play and so Sladovna created this fantastic play area – Pilařiště. The exposition offers activities and experience of all types of play. Our objective was to create an entertaining, comfortable and beautiful space where children can play as long as they want and those taking care of them can also play, relax and look for inspiration on how best to promote the development of their children.

Basic description of the exhibit

What will you find there? No text. No words. A lot of colours and paintings. A beautiful environment for play, discovery and exploring of the world for children of up to 6 years of age. Pilařiště is not about the routine, bans or orders. It is a creative and welcoming world that will guide children in how to deal with new discoveries. They learn about themselves and the world around them using all their senses and they develop their movement and cognitive abilities, creativity and fantasy.

The Playful Gallery is closely related to the legacy of Radek Pilař, a native of Písek. „When we started working the concept of the exposition for the littlest ones, we could not have ignore the work of a man who dedicated his whole life to children and who also managed to remain a child through his never-ending playfulness and curiosity his whole life“, says Tereza Dobiášová, Manager of Sladovna.
