Welcome to REmida Perth
REmida is a Reggio Emilia inspired creative reuse centre that collects discards and offcuts that can be directly repurposed into community based education and arts activities.
Introducing Daniela Giacopelli
Hello everyone, I am Daniela Giacopelli, I was born and raised in a little village in the mountains near Reggio Emilia-Italy.
I met REmida Perth at the beginning of 2021 and I am currently cooperating with the team of work on two different creative projects.
I graduated at the Modena and Reggio Emilia university in science and technologies and I started to work in 2009 in the Atelier From Wave to Wave.
The Atelier was created form the cooperation between the National Park of Appennino Tosco Emiliano, Reggio Children and the local municipality.
Located inside an hydroelectric power station in the middle of beautiful forests, the Atelier offered to people from 0 to 99 years old experiences of research about water and energy; art, science, pedagogy were the protagonist to support each visitor in building process of learning constantly nourish creative process and using unique competences and qualities.
Nowadays I am creating a project where the pedagogy, the art and the nature will be strictly connected in a zero waste farm in the middle of the Tosco Emiliano Appennins.
Daniela has inspired us to create our embedded Professional Learning program, which operates over a 5-10 week time frame and allows all educators within a centre to be involved in a Reggio-REmida inspired learning experience. The program focuses on generating, experience based, child led, creative explorations with children of all ages.
From Collaboration to Inspiration
