Children’s Festival (Peru)
For a few hours, the courtyard of the headquarters of New Acropolis Peru became a magical place that sparked the imagination of all. Our art workshops held a joyful Children’s Festival entitled “The World of Toys”. Amid stories, theatre, music, magic numbers, dances, games and other activities the children had fun and also learned many ways of being better every day. Many stories touched and thrilled the young and old. Pinocchio taught us the value of truth and goodness; the Tin Soldier reminded us that we can live in harmony; “we are all valuable” was the lesson given to us by Pili the Little She-Bear; Alice, in her toy room, reminded us of the importance of tidiness and the charming and beautiful dancers touched us with their message of harmony.
This Sunday morning the child that exists even in the oldest of us was awakened and everyone felt that sense of joy, wonder, innocence and spontaneity.
In this way, members of the New Acropolis art workshops shared what they had learned and developed through art and philosophy, planting seeds of goodness and harmony in the souls of the little ones.
