A retrospective evaluation has been made by New Acropolis on the work done in support of the Archaeological Site of Cástulo which ended last Saturday the 26th with a tour of the excavations with its Director Marcelo Castro, who showed us the findings discovered throughout this year.

New Acropolis participated with 33 volunteers, a total of 377 hours of service in 14 days. Assistance in the excavating was provided as well as different tasks of extraction, screening and cleaning of materials; it was also possible to work at the Linares Archaeological Museum assisting in the classification and documentation of materials found during the excavation. This support has always been supervised and directed by the scientific team of the archaeological site. This volunteerism activity has been a very enriching experience for the participants and it is framed within one of the strategic lines of New Acropolis of helping us to know our historical-artistic heritage.

On Sunday October the 20th eighteen members of New Acropolis and non-members participated in a Workshop “Once upon a line…” carried out in the Mumbai Branch of New Acropolis. The workshop was conducted by Mrs. Donneta Ditton Tripathi, Australian author of stories, which began with an interactive session of “fast writing” with the participation of all those attending the workshop, developing a story in this way by the whole group.

After a short coffee break, small tips about the art of expressive writing followed by a group editing session. Next the participants had the opportunity to structure their own story and finally they ended with a conclusion for the general story of the group. The experience was very helpful to the group, as it helped them to expand their imagination and overcome their inhibitions when expressing themselves in writing.
