<p> <em><strong>Let's film everything that characterizes us !</strong></em></p> <p> <em><strong>Please help us to finance our project.</strong></em></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> It has been 20 years since our <em>great</em> <em>little school, </em>Tutti Frutti, opened for a unique language learning experience, and our mission began; to help children aged 3 to 11 years to explore languages in an incomparable environment of openness, joy and creativity. </p> <p>  </p> <p> Tutti Frutti is a true <em>Tower of Babel</em>, located in the heart of Europe, Brussels. Here, we speak and teach 11 languages and we promote an active teaching method, accessible to everyone. In our classrooms, you can linguistically travel all over the world, from Italy to Sweden, passing via England, China, Russia, and the U.S.A. You can hear little voices learning Spanish, Arabic, and Finnish; and of course the 3 beautiful languages of our own little Belgium; Dutch, French and German.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong><em>The heart of the matter!</em></strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> On this occasion, our 20th anniversary, we want to highlight the linguistic and creative fusion which exists in our school; to say thank you to the countless children, parents, grandparents and the many teachers and friends of Tutti Frutti, who, over the years, have given their time, energy and passion to this lovely project.</p> <p>  </p> <p> So, we have given ourselves a challenge. To make a documentary film about our school. We want to capture the magic that exists here thanks to linguistic diversity, and to show how children and teachers from various ethnic and linguistic origins share their daily school lives; cooking, creating art, practicing theater and yoga together, and above all, learning from one another.</p> <p>  </p> <p> At this time, when questions about multiculturalism, communication and the upbringing of our children are in strong focus, we would like to share our school philosophy and  reveal to the world a multicultural and multilingual space where difference is celebrated.</p> <p>  </p> <p> In a world where many want to build higher walls, we want to offer our small bridge.</p> <p>  </p> <p> The filming of the documentary « Crescendo » began in October 2016 and will end in April 2017. The première screening will take place at the Tutti Frutti 20th anniversary party on June 11, at the Tricoterie in Saint Gilles in Brussels. The party is from 12h.00 to 17.00 and you are all very welcome.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p>
