Daydreaming 2018
Close your eyes and imagine, if it was possible, where would you like to be now?
What do you see? What do you hear? What are you doing?

Children see a lot of films and videos daily, but hardly make them themselves.
In this filmworkshop (4 x 1,5 hour), for primary education (6 – 10 years old), children show their daydreams by drawing, animation and sound. They experiment with the possibilities of film by combining image and sound and in that way building up tension and tell a ‘story’.

Linda Bannink studied at the audiovisual department of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and in 2002 she completed her residency at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam. In 2016/17 she did the BIK-training (‘Professional Artists in the Classroom’) at the Amsterdam University of the Arts. Since then she organizes, besides the documentary projects with El Despacho, photography and film workshops for children, in primary educacion (group 1 – 8). Meantime she gained a lot of experience in teaching children and adults.

“Linda has such a natural attitude towards the children.
The lessons are thoroughly prepared, in such a way that she takes the space in practice. She sees every child and every child feels being seen. She gives the group such a natural confidence , that they give this confidence in return.”
- Elly, leerkracht groep 4/5 OBS De Roos

“Linda is an ace in preparing her lessons. She has a pleasant voice and comes across friendly. She enjoys the pupils, but also teaching itself. Besides that, she is flexible, whereby she comes across relaxed. The assignments which were chosen and the explanation which was given were clear. The children went to work enthusiastically.
Also the finishing of the lessons got the right attention. Questions were asked to the pupils and Linda gave feedback to what they had done.”
- Paula, leerkracht BEVO groep 1 t/m 8 & ICC, De Ichtusschool, Amsterdam
