Be My Guest, Mr. Elephant
The Children’s Art Centre in Poznań
We bring together people who share one passion: a passion for art made for children and by children. Our activities are aimed at those who are still learning to walk and talk, those who have made it to crèche or nursery, then to elementary, middle, or secondary school, and finally to university, but also at those who have never lost the thirst and courage for discovering the world and themselves within the world. They all come to us and meet across generational boundaries. We organise a number of cyclical events, many of which have a long- standing tradition. We deal with theatre, film, music, and visual arts, sometimes treating them as separate domains, but usually making them complement each other and form a whole, just like we as individuals get together to form a team.
We are a local government cultural institution which not only believes in its mission, but also realises it every day.

Rik Boskamp, a son of a nerdy bookkeeper, dreams of only one thing: to stop being bullied in school. Inspired by a mafia movie Rik devices a plan. He persuades his dad to move houses and makes sure that the people in the new place think his father is a dangerous mafia boss – Paulo Boskampi. And at the beginning his plan does work – Rikkie Boskampi gains strong position at school and everybody is scared of Paulo. The father and the son are treated with respect. Until a bully from the past turns up again. How long can Rikkie keep up his lie?
