Theater performances play a very important role in children’s psychosocial development. Theater constitutes a cultural good that has a beneficial effect on children facing health issues, living in poverty or experiencing social exclusion. For such cases, the theater is a source of joy, psychological support and creative relief in the treatment or social acceptance and integration of children who have suffered both physically and psychologically.
For the past 15 years, the Neos Kosmos Theater has run a program titled “Solidarity Theater for Children” performing, free of charge, plays for children in hospitals, institutions, special schools, refugee camps, solidarity initiatives, deprived areas, women’s prisons, dependence treatment programs and other. Over the past years, due to the fact that poverty rates have risen dramatically in Greece, the program is also aimed at children that cannot attend theater performances due to financial problems.
Act4Greece supports the Solidarity Theater for Children from 02.05.2017 through 31.08.2017 for the purpose of raising funds to meet the production costs of “Pinocchio” in the period 2017-2018, its total budget amounting to €64,000.
To show its appreciation and to honor supporters of the action for their contribution, the Neos Kosmos Theater will offer the following token rewards:
