Invitation for the 50th International Children´s Exhibition of Fine Arts Lidice 2022

The Czech Embassy in Bern cordially invites children and teachers to participate in the 50th International Children´s Exhibition of Fine Arts Lidice (ICEFA) 2022.

ICEFA Lidice is a one round competition for children 4 to 16 years for all types of schools and organizations working with children – nursery schools, primary schools, primary art schools, special schools, leisure-time centers of children and youth, children’s houses, multi-year grammar schools and other secondary schools. Individuals can participate as well.

The expert panel of judges consisting of art teachers and visual artists selects circa 1,400 works for exhibition. The works are awarded Honourable Mentions and the best of them obtain “Rose of Lidice” medals.

The 50th ICEFA Lidice will be dedicated to the theme: MUSEUM.
In museums, people can learn about the world's diversity and shared history.

Your artworks can be inspired by: Various collections that are collected, conserved, studied and exhibited in museums. All kinds of things can be found among them: minerals, dinosaur skeletons or even technical inventions, but in museums, we can also learn about intangible heritage. Another inspiration can be galleries and museums of art with famous artworks. Museums are often beautiful buildings, but sometimes they do not even need a roof – all over the world, open air museums show traditions of ancestors to people and the beauty of the landscape that they grew in. Botanical and zoological gardens are also special kinds of museums.

Museum is like a living organism with its own structure: many people take part in its daily life. Scientists and historians, security guards, archivists, custodians… and of course visitors.

• And if there is no museum close to you, perhaps you have your own collections of personal treasures.

• What would the museum of your dreams be like? 

• What would you like to show to future generations or to a person from a far away country? 

• What would happen if museum exhibits suddenly became alive? 

• What would a museum of your life or your family look like? 

Closing date for the registration and the last acceptable date on the postmark on the consignment of entries is February 11, 2022.
