The Children’s Choice Awards: Awards Ceremony

Transforming kids into award judges

This performance intervention transforms local elementary school students into the official festival Jury. The children watch all the performances, create their own awards, decide the nominees, and present hand-made trophies to the winning artists at an awards ceremony on the last day of the festival. Look out for these young judges entering the venues on a special red carpet! Planned and directed by the Canadian company Mammalian Diving Reflex, The Children’s Choice Awards is a participatory and playful project exploring the role of children and the arts in society.

This presentation has been made possible in part by the Ontario Arts Council’s National and International Touring program.

Profile

Mammalian Diving Reflex

Mammalian Diving Reflex views innovative artistic interventions as a way to trigger generosity and equity across the universe. Founded in 1993, Mammalian is a research-art atelier that creates site and social-specific performance events, theatre productions, participatory gallery installations, video products, art objects and theoretical texts. Mammalian’s body of work is interconnected, varied and vibrant, reflecting a unique and growing body of knowledge and expertise on the use and function of culture. Mammalian create work with artists and non-artists that recognizes the social responsibility of art, dismantling barriers between individuals of all ages, cultural, economic and social backgrounds. Their mission is to bring people together in new and unusual ways and to create work that is engaging and challenging.

 

In addition to artistic practice, Mammalian is evolving a consultancy and policy think-tank focused on the participation of children and young people in the cultural life and cultural economies of the city.

 

Mammalian’s work includes: Nuit Market, Eat the Street, Haircuts by Children, The Children’s Choice Awards, Nightwalks with Teenagers, These Are the People in Your Neighbourhood, Dare Night, Slow Dance With Teacher, Ballroom Dancing, A Suicide-Site Guide to the City, Monster Makers, All the Sex I’ve Ever Had and Old Women Shooting Guns.

 

Mammalian Diving Reflex’s work has been presented or exhibited in over eighty cities around the world.
