ISLAMABAD: Encouraged by the tremendous success of the first two summer camps held in 2015 & 2016, the National Institute of Folk and Traditional Heritage (Lok Virsa) is pleased to announce its “Children Summer Camp 2017 in Punjabi and Brahvi Languages”. It will take place from 5th to 31st July 2017 at the beautiful surrounding of Lok Virsa Heritage Museum, Garden Avenue, Shakarparian.
While appreciating the diversity of Pakistan, the summer camp aims at providing an orientation to children (age 6-12 years) about the language, poetry, crafts, music and festivals of both these communities. It also aims at creating ownership among children regarding Pakistan’s languages and cultural heritage. It will also reaffirm our identity of being multi-cultural and pluralistic country.
The children will learn at least 15 sentences and additional vocabulary in Punjabi and Brahvi languages. During the classes scheduled between 10 am to 1 pm (Monday to Friday), the children will also interact with master artisans, folk artists, folk musicians, story tellers and cultural personalities in order to get them acquainted with the rich cultural heritage of Pakistan.
The children will also be provided an opportunity to visit various national museums during the summer camp.
Lok Virsa will provide teaching material and lunch to the participating children at its own.
