At the Museum of Greek Children’s Art in Athens, Greece: Promoting Diversity and Acceptance

While in Athens last week, I had the opportunity to visit The Museum of Greek Children’s Art, one of three museums throughout the globe devoted exclusively to children’s art. Its collections include approximately 8,000 drawings and 3D artworks created by children, ages five to 14 years old. Collaborating with a range of institutions, professionals and researchers, it offers workshops on a range of topics with particular emphasis on diversity and acceptance of differences. What follows are several more images from the exhibit, Alone or Unique? Diversity & Racism, which focuses on people who are “different.”
