Kids

If you're a kid, you can create Earth Speakr messages and invite your friends to make more.

Institutions

If you're an institution or part of a network, you can host an event and encourage kids to participate.

Upcoming events

Toolkits available on the website guide you in co-creating engaging activities for kids to explore the artwork and in bringing Earth Speakr into your existing programming.

Earth Speakr toolkits

Inspire visitors to get involved by streaming a selection of Earth Speakr messages on your existing display screens or computers, using the Earth Speakr messages of the month film.

Streaming

Grown-ups

If you're a grown up, explore the Earth Speakr messages, create groups of messages – so-called Loud Speakrs – and share with others to amplify the topics that you find most relevant. Take your Loud Speakrs with you to demonstrate how you act in response to kids' concerns.

Listen to the future!

Decision-makers

If you work in politics, you can get involved by listening to what future constituents have to say and considering how you can best respond to the topics they raise. Eliasson hopes you will be inspired to bring Earth Speakr messages to the table to make kids feel met and heard.

Listen to the future!

Earth Speakr toolkits

Studio Olafur Eliasson has collaborated with leading institutions and experts in creating toolkits to inspire your engagement with Earth Speakr in various settings. Each toolkit is designed to help in the process of discovering the artwork – from exploring existing messages to empowering kids to create new messages.

Earth Speakr toolkits invite kids to imagine, to create, to share, and to get inspired through the process of discovery. Toolkits can be combined and applied as suitable in institutions and at home with friends and family alike.

We welcome your creative interpretations of Earth Speakr toolkits and look forward to hearing about your events!

"What is the city of the future?" workshop in Venice
By Ocean Space
On Friday November 27 Ocean Space will collaborate once again with Earth Speakr, involving a group of schools from the Veneto region tasked with imagining the city of the future. On this occasion, students will be invited to reflect on the places where they live. The city is a place of memory, it preserves the collective memories of the communities that inhabit it, it preserves the passing of the eras that have come and gone, from its origins through its various styles, highlighting the individual elements which form the whole. But what are they? Shapes, materials, symbols, elements that are similar in some cultures, and different from others, making it unique. But what kind of city awaits us in the future? What do students imagine or hope for? The students, depending on the grade they belong to, will be invited to reflect on how cities are changing, how polluted they are, and what should be done to improve them. They will become real researchers, urban planners, philosophers, and sociologists. By experimenting with collages and three-dimensional constructions, at the end of the activity they will be invited to create a collective model, whether flat or three-dimensional, which will be the cumulative result of their own individual creations, and will be invited to share their message to adults through the Earth Speakr app.
