Friday April 3 - SCHOOL DAY
The day of April 3 will be dedicated to schoolchildren. They will be close to 5! Dozens of workshops are offered to classes, from nursery to high school. Everything is prepared in advance thanks to close collaboration between teachers and authors. From these meetings, a unique cultural and educational event is built year after year.

The Festival attracts classes from all over Normandy; far from the preconceived ideas on a youth who would no longer read and would only listen to music quickly consumed.

The visible part of the iceberg reflects the work undertaken from the start of the school year. The choice of musical theme for the next edition of the festival is announced in November. A first bibliographic work is done, then the networks are activated in order to find the right speakers for each workshop. In a second step, the authors are invited and a schedule is organized according to the teachers' wishes, time slots, the availability of writers and places ... A meticulous and titanic work.

The icing on the cake: all ages are concerned.

 by Max Legoubé and Frédéric Hocké at the 
Deauville Festival Hall (kindergartens)
One fine morning, Little Clown wakes up and notices that he has lost his colors but also his circus. To find them, he will have to cross the visual universes of Matisse, Picasso and especially Calder, whose strange bestiary is never far away. This trip will allow him to meet as amazing as funny.
A full explosion of colors sprinkled with humorous touches to delight the youngest.

by Zenzika,
by Wilfrid Lupano and Grégory Panaccione at the Théâtre du Casino Barrière

This “concert comic strip” is a story full of surprises and surprises. Wilfrid Lupano and Grégory Panaccione compose here a silent story which sparkles with mischief. The two accomplices strive to create and stage episodes that will distance, geographically, a couple that each imagines inseparable from the first day of their union. A wordless story carried by music that crosses pop, jazz, traditional and improvised influences.


Digital museum            
In particular, having access to works from the Louvre Museum and extracts from concerts by the Philharmonie de Paris is now possible thanks to the Digital Museum.
From Tango to Rock through Klezmer, come and discover and understand the links between literature and music, put in parallel with major pictorial works. During the visit, students will be able to interact in a fun way with digital tablets. "

Quiz in motion
Run and debate around questions related to the music, literature and books of the selection.
In the courtyard of the pools, on the boards of Deauville, the students will move from one point to another to answer the questions in the quiz.

Exquisite Corpse
During this workshop, students are invited to create exquisite literary or graphic corpses around the themes of the festival.
The exquisite corpse is a game which consists in having a sentence, or a drawing, composed by several people without any of them being able to take into account what the previous person drew.

Electronic poetry     
When does poetry become music? With the help of the Makey Makey, an electronic tool allowing to transform everyday objects, potato, glass of water into connected objects, the students will put to music sentences and words extracted from the novels of the selection of the Prix des Teens. "

From digital to book and music     
Discover two interactive installations on the theme of digital, books and music.
By group, explore the layout of an extract from one of the selection's books or an original musical creation, all through interaction with sensors. So, vary the rhythm of the music by approaching the ultrasonic sensor or the size of the typography via a potentiometer.

Literary briefs             
From the books of the selection, the pupils draw a character, a place, an episode, an object and a musical style, and write in group the summary of a hybrid "6th book", combining all these elements.
At the end of the session, each group reads its summary to the other members of the class.
