• #PhilosophyWithChildren

    What questions are you asking yourself now and how are they related to the questions you want to keep asking yourself when you 'grow up'? We use creative methods to help children (and adults) to collect and analyze their questions.

    Children ask the same questions as adults

    • Why does death exist?
    • Who am I?
    • Why am I afraid of heights
    • Why do people promise something and then don't do it?
    • Why do I forget the questions that were just in my head?
    • Why do I ask questions?
    • How did brains come into existence?


    How we started


    In 2005 with the support of the elementary school De Polsstok, Brede School, Amsterdam Roomforthoughts developed a creative philosophy project that helps children to think about themselves in relation to the world by assisting them in the creation of an alternative self-portrait.


    This alternative self-portrait arises from a series of unique performative workshops in which the children collect their current thoughts and questions about themselves and society. This alternative self-portrait is documented within a personal diary.
