Theatre and literature (for children and adults), oral tradition


A journey from the oral to the written word and vice versa: tradition, course, perspectives (c.o.a.l. > cοmmunication- orality-art- literature)

The main goal of the project is to reintroduce orality (art of speech /oral tradition) as a form of art in the everyday activities of everyone ( pupils, students, teachers and generally adults in all levels and stages of education ) from kindergarten to lifelong learning. The project will develop on the fields of:
  • Research,
  • Collection and production of oral material (especially traditional folktales, poetry, songs, myths etc.)
  • Classes,
  • E-platform,
  • Radio productions and performances for adults and children
  • Exchanges , travels and conferences (all the partners)all the above in relation to the oral tradition of the Greek language and the language of every participant partner /country
More specifically:
  1. Research will be focused on recalling forms of oral tradition which will be designated and promoted as inseparable manifestations of our cultural heritage through organized presentations in a wide range of today’s audience (children, adults, Greek or foreigner, etc.)
  2. Organization of workshops on the proper enunciation and delivery of the Greek language addressing especially adults, teachers, refugees, immigrants, social workers, and psychologists with a special interest in speech problems.

  5. Creation of an e-platform with original recordings of texts of Greek (and other partners) tradition, Greek (and other partners) literature, Greek (and other partners) theatre which can be used by members of the Greek (and other partners) population with special needs or people who are precluded in some way (people in jail, hospitals, psychiatric clinics etc.)
