Let’s play Folk Design with the MintaKINCStár! Presentation of the MintaKINCStár (Treasure trove of patterns) game collection by the award winning game designer Zsuzsanna Sevella in the frame of the SZÉPMŰVESTÁR (FINE ART STORAGE) series.

How can children develop visual culture while also ingesting the traditional native language? Can folk art be revitalized, never to be discarded as boring curios? Zsuzsanna Sevella will be presenting her MintaKINCStár game collection before the public and the parents in the frame of a professional discussion, and in practice in workshops playing with children spread over 3 days.

The development of the mintaKINCStár community social design product as a cultural sustainability and innovation project has been ongoing since 2015, with a professional background in play and development pedagogy and ethnography. The social responsibility of toy design is to give our children and grandchildren the chance to playfully learn about their visual heritage of folk art and to pass on this visual mother tongue.

While children are playing and creating using the ancient patterns in the mintaKINCStár in a modern guise, they are becoming the unseen masters of their heritage. What can a family do with a preschooler, toddler, toddler-schooler or teacher in the classroom on a hectic day, locked up during covid or bad weather? Let's play Folk Design with the MintaKINCStár!
