    CARTOONS AND COMICS IN INTERCULTURAL EDUCATION

    by
    Cartoons, caricatures and comics are an excellent medium to explore stereotyped perceptions of other cultures as well as provide pathways to engage learners in collaborative projects. They are a way to describe emotions, feelings or situations, to tell stories or to illustrate a point of view on current social, political or cultural topics. As such they can be used for teaching a wide range of subjects for learners of all ages and education levels. Working on stereotypes we can recreate a more adequate picture of other ways of thinking and behaving. Comment

    PAPER PUPPETS IN ACTION

    by
    PAPER PUPPETS IN ACTION The working process described below was part of a Grundtvig Course organized by The Bielsko Artistic Association Grodzki Theatre in Cappadocia (Goreme and Nevşehir), Turkey in April 2014 under the title: “Theatre in Adult Education – from the practitioners` perspective”. It lasted for six days and included a public presentation of puppet scenes created by the group. The course activities were conducted in a few different places: in a restaurant room (empty in the mornings), in the attic of a carpet shop, on the hotel terrace, in the public school and in the open air. Thus, the participants were able to experiment with space and had to adapt to different conditions. A very unique environment of Cappadocia was chosen for the course activities on purpose. Its rich multicultural and historical background, as well as magnificent landscape proved to be a great source of inspiration and fostered creativity of the group. 6
