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:

  • Inclusion in the special group of friends of the “Solidarity Theater for Children” and regular updates through e-newsletters regarding the progress of the action, regardless of the amount the donor may offer.
  • Poster of the performance for donations of over €5.
  • Poster and printed program of the performance for donations of over €20.
  • Poster, printed program, and commemorative T-shirt of the performance for donations of over €50.
  • Poster, printed program, and commemorative T-shirt of the performance as well as a selection of 10 theater programs / books of previous performances of the Neos Kosmos Theater, including the transcript of the play, for donations of over €100.
  • All the above, plus the option to have the plays performed at the venue of institutions or associations or elsewhere as the donor may so desire or at the Theater, in the case of donations of over €500 (this option will be available for every €500 offered; for instance, a donor may offer €1,000 and thus request 2 performances at 1 or 2 specific institutions).

Donations can also be made by making a direct deposit at any NBG branch or a money transfer through NBG’s internet, phone and mobile banking to Account no. 080/00541600 (ΙΒΑΝ: GR2001100800000008000541600 / BIC: ETHNGRAA).
