VAST action at Peristeri Art School in Greece
VAST Project, in the context of the Pilot focusing on the Ancient Greek Drama literature, organized an educational activity in the Art School of the Municipality of Peristeri in Athens, on 12 & 15 April 2022.
During the activity, VAST project coordinator G.Petasis and collaborating researcher D.Katsamori of NCSR Demokritos, projected audiovisual material from the Ancient Greek Tragedy “Antigone” by Sophocles to 60 high school students. Then, the students engaged in interactive activities and brainstorming, which resulted in the creation of mind maps interlinking moral values between the past and the present.
With the creative collaboration of the school’s philologists and the students, the activity provided a fresh view of how ancient values emerging from this Greek Tragedy are perceived in modern society today.
