EVS Tale of the Two Cities booklet

Booklet describing the amazing learning adventure that Izabela and Dariusz have had through Erasmus+ EVS project TALE OF THE TWO CITIES

Theater play: making

Theater play: making costums and props Polish volunteer Izabela Puk cooperates regulary, one time per week with o Clube Eco-Escolas/Eco-Carmo da Escola Básica e Secundária do Carmo, in Câmara de Lobos. Together with two teachers from eco club: prof. Carla Jardim and prof. Fátima Rodrigues, in partnership with art teacher, prof. Filipe Oliveira and students, we created costumes and props, the whole lot made from various recycling materials assembled by local people and offered by them to the school. Beside the theater and recycling ideas, the main idea was to involve young people with fewer opportunities. Some of them come from difficult backgrounds and involving them in activities such as set construction, making costumes and acting will occupy their leisure times preventing them from following unhealthy habits. It will also increase their participation in community and civic life. In this project, the methodology of art therapy and theory and methodology of intercultural communication were also included. Main goal of this project was to build unity, harmony, peace and ecological awareness. methodology:art therapy handicraft, & intercultural communication

Theater play: Let’s practice! Every single week, the students and the teacher Teresa Beijoca, responsible for the theater club, met to practice, tried new theater methods of self-expression etc. Similar as in the case of costums preparation, the teacher used of theatre techniques to facilitate personal growth and promote mental health. It’s alternative method of working with emotions, reccomended specialy for children from difficult backgrounds. The topic was chosen to spread knowledge about invasive species among children because it’s not well-known yet and it’s a topic outside the school programme. Non-formal education methods turn out to be perfect to increase knowledge and skills. methodology:Theater, drama therapy, body-awareness
