In March, when quarantine began because of the COVID-19 virus, MGLC issued a public call for submissions to schools to participate in the campaign Kitch’n Megazine for School Kids. Aware of the fact that difficult living conditions have never been an obstacle to creativity and that such a moment can also be an opportunity for the collective spirit and art, we invited primary, secondary and grammar schools throughout Slovenia to create an art zine. The invitation applied to the class as a whole, but the participation of individuals also counted.
We upgraded the popular creative concept of do it yourself to do it together. Participants submitted their contributions as files of pdf or jpg format and A4 size. Each participating class (or individual) received one copy of the publication, three of which are stored in the MGLC archive. All those who have joined the campaign are also entitled to a free ticket to visit MGLC in the 2020/2021 school year.
16 schools and 47 classes responded to the call and a total of 368 contributions were made.
