Theatre Summer Camp - Pilion 2018

Agios Ioannis Pilion Greece, 26/8-1/9/2018

17th Theatre Summer Camp - Seminar "Pilion 2018 & "Changing aspects" at Agios Ioannis Beach, Mt Pelion, Greece - 26 August - 1 September 2018 - for teachers, artists, facilitators, youths - organised by: Hellenic Theatre/Drama & Education Network (TENet-Gr)

''Changing aspects''

From 26 of August to 1 of September 2018, the Hellenic Theatre/Drama & Education Network holds its 17th annual Theatre Summer Camp- Seminar at Agios Ioannis Beach, Mt Pilion, Greece.
We stay and work in the friendly and relaxing environment of a well organized campsite, by the sea.
Artists, teachers, educators, actors, musicians, visual artists, theatre practitioners and scholars share their stories and communicate using as a medium/tool several theatrical techniques whilst investigating their application in education.

This year the Camp also hosts a "Students Workshop" (13-17yrs)

The Camp-Seminar includes practical theatre & drama workshops, story-telling night by the camp fire, project presentations, performances, activities in the area (hiking, tours etc.) physical exercise, swimming, free time and a farewell party.

Pelion Camp 2018 also hosts the Project:
"It could be me - It could be you"
The refugee issues and their impact on education of young children in particular will be approach though discussions, workshops and a Forum Theatre performance by members of the “it could be me-it could be you” project run by the Hellenic Theatre/Drama & Education Network (TENet-Gr) and UNHCR Greece (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees)

The location:

Agios Ioannis is a seaside village 55 km from Volos Town, on Eastern Mt. Pilio, Central Greece, located in an idyllic place. Its unique, blue flagged beach, with pearl like pebbles, is the main attraction of the village, which offers many choices of accommodation and catering. Agios Ioannis has turned into a well-organized tourist resort because of the infrastructure developed in the village and the wider area during the last 20 years. Additionally, one of the advantages of the village is the fact that it is located close to the most famous mountain villages of Eastern Pelion and between the famous beaches of Plaka and Papa Nero.
