NEOsvitnii Arsenal

The festival for kids and teenagers NEOsvitnii Arsenal is Mystetskyi Arsenal’s project which took place for the fourth time in 2024. For the previous five years, the festival was held under the name Arsenal of Ideas.

The prefix “NEO” in the title of the festival sends us to the joy of knowledge in a new way — for everyone, regardless of their age or needs (demands). NEOsvitnii Arsenal embodies our belief in the power of education through artistic practices, creative experience, interaction with cultural and historical material. The importance of game form and free choice, where the best result shows education in the field of culture, only reinforces the child’s innate crave for knowledge.

Every year approximately 5 000 people visit NEOsvitnii Arsenal, mostly those are school aged children. During the existence of the festival, organizers made much effort to make it as accessible as possible for all groups of children, and also — in different ways strengthen the theme of inclusiveness and vulnerability.
