The Artysh:Lab Artistic Association is engaged in creating interactive concerts and music workshops for babies and children from the perinatal period to the age of twelve. In its work so far, more than 500 interactive concerts have been performed, four scientific research studies have been conducted, and various projects have been implemented at the Center for the Protection of Infants, Children, and Youth and the Venčić Developmental Kindergarten. The Musicate with Movement Scientifico-Artistic Development Center, aimed at adults (professionals, parents of young children, and hobbyists) and scientific research activities, was established in 2023. The results of research carried out by the organization and presented at domestic and international conferences in Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, and the United Kingdom have shown that the center’s programs have elicited a positive response in participating children, and that music and movement can influence psychomotor development in the earliest stages. The organization also conducts training for future professionals in the field of early development for the implementation of music activities in this setting, creates programs both for children of standard developmental capabilities and for children with sensory integration difficulties, works on developing new audiences in the musical arts, and promotes the importance of performing for the youngest among us.
