An intensive course for teachers, youth leaders and educators in all disciplines
This one-week course will focus on the techniques and theory through practice in the way we are using our creativity to produce interesting short stories and drama games in the educational environment. During the course of this seminar the participants will learn how to create interesting stories through creativity games and how to use drama games in their educational environments through the famous method of Stanislavski. This course is really based on practical techniques through games and improvisation. One week of games, creativity and acting on the beautiful island of Corfu!
The aim of this hands-on course is for the participants to learn how to create interesting scripts using their creativity and how to use drama games in their educational environment in order to make their students more interested in the class and to make the structure of their educational programmes and teaching more playful through the method of Stanislavski.

Corfu is a beautiful green island, which enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate. Corfu is a very popular tourist destination. Up until the early 20th century, it was mainly visited by the European royals and elites. It is still popular with the global elite. The island’s history is laden with battles and conquests. Corfu was long controlled by Venice and repulsed several Turkish sieges, before falling under British rule following the Napoleonic Wars. Corfu was eventually ceded by the British Empire along with the remaining islands of the United States of the Ionian Islands, and unification with modern Greece was concluded in 1864 under the Treaty of London. Corfu is renowned for its long tradition and rich culture which is unlike any other Greek island. In 2007, the city’s old city was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Here you will also discover a compact world of beautiful beaches and stunning mountain peaks, ancient ruins and picturesque villages. There is something for everyone on the island, whether you prefer peace and quiet or a lively cosmopolitan destination.
