Can storytelling connect different cultures? Are there fairy tales known to the whole world?
✨ Friday was the day for creative writing! We all know some fairy tales like Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Little Red Riding Hood or Sleeping Beauty. Participants of the “Seniors in Arts” program discovered that despite different cultures we know many of the same poetry.
🧙‍♂️ Seniors divided into countries’ groups created their local, famous fairy tales by drawing. Then they were reading the mixed fairy-tale clippings and had to guess which parts would stick together. That activity further strengthened the bonds of our participants. After the workshops all groups went to visit museum of Cycladic Art. 🗿
🪄 These are the chronicles of “Seniors in Arts” Blended Mobility for Seniors Learners, and we will be sharing stories and posts with you for the next 6 days.
🇪🇺 The project is co-financed by the European Commission through the Erasmus+ program, allowing us to join forces with the art-loving partner organisations to create an inclusive and creative environment: Seniors in arts | Sinergia Go2Europe | Buharkent Halk Eğitimi Merkezi | Fundacja Pro Scientia Publica | Vida+Viva / Associação Animam Viventem | Roes Cooperativa
