Dear children, Dear teachers,
We would like to cordially invite you to participate in the 51st International Children’s Exhibition of Fine Arts Lidice 2023.

The competition and subsequent exhibition is one of the largest in the world, bringing together thousands of children from all over the world every year. In 2023, 20 years will have passed since the adoption of the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage and it will be the 50th anniversary of the organization International Dance Council CID (The United Nations of Dance) under the auspices of UNESCO.

The 51st ICEFA Lidice will be dedicated to the theme:


Dance is a physical activity that can convey stories, emotions and moods without using words – like fine art. Dance is a means of human communication and has been a part of human culture since time immemorial. Already in the prehistoric age, people performed ritual dances to ensure a successful hunt or to win the favor of their gods.

Over time, dance has become a part of folk festivities and also of theatrical performances. Dancing can tell a story, express feelings or just be movement for joy. People dance together in groups, for an audience, with their loved ones or just by themselves. Dance is associated with rhythm, music, and often with beautiful and expressive costumes and dresses. The effect of dancing can be influenced not only by the dancers, but also by a choreographer or a scenographer, traditional dances often employ the work of a number of craftsmen and musicians.

Around us, we can also find dances in a figurative sense – a dance of colours and lights, a dance of planets, the dancing of shadows on the wall.
