Description

The Culture Lab welcomes children, parents and volunteers every day in its welcoming space at Alkamenous 11b Street. In the Culture Lab, children participate in creative activity groups, learning support classes, art workshops and visits to theatrical performances and other cultural places. 

Almost a hundred children systematically participated in the activities of the Culture Lab. The children come from many different countries. Through role-play activities, group games, songs and rich audiovisual material all children are given the opportunity to learn their basic children’s rights. Through interdisciplinary actions, the defense and the claim of their rights are highlighted. 

We have the pleasure of having stable and active volunteers, supporting and inspiring learning support groups and creative groups. Through creative groups and learning support groups, children develop their creativity, enhance their autonomy and develop their language system. 

The Culture Lab hosts educational programmes for school classes and other groups of children and aims to inform and raise awareness about their rights. 

The Culture Lab operates the Children’s Lending Library, which includes 8000 titles of children’s and adolescent’s books, including foreign and bilingual books. As part of the Library’s activities, many authors visit and carry out activities with their books and literacy groups for children are implemented, with a variety of topics.
