What did the children discover and create on Sunday, 30 January, at the Museum?
What can Amal – a 9-year-old refugee who’s also a 3.5-metre puppet from Syria – pigeons and sharks have to do with the Museum?
Through the museum education action "A Puppet Takes a Trip,” the children at the museum’s amphitheatre learned about the adventure of Amal’s journey to various countries, and they heard about diversity and acceptance.
They then learned about various means of communication over the years, such as postal pigeons, which carried messages over long distances, and they created shadows in the dark with puppet pigeons.
Through the narration of a fairy tale, and inspired by a video of the OTE cable ship ‘Thalis o Milesios’, which laid underwater cable, the children created colourful puppet sharks and narrated their own fairy tales.
