1-TM-Street Delivery3-TM-Street DeliveryEvery year, one of the streets in Timisoara is closed to traffic to create a cultural space for children and young people. The street selected for this year brought together different practical workshops supported by various non-governmental organizations under a single theme – this year the theme was COLOURS. New Acropolis presented three workshops. One on coloured drawings on paper, reflecting each participant’s vision of a better world. Another workshop about feelings: truth, beauty, courage, curiosity, generosity, friendship, in which children associate each of these feelings with colour and paint the petals of a flower. The third workshop was aimed at adult participants, who were invited to paint several archaeological reproductions made by New Acropolis.
