Diogene Cultural Association: Agora in the Schoolyard.
Who we are and what we do
We are the Diogene Cultural Association, an organization grown around the Thespis Theater, known through CiviCultura, movement & civic activation program and community reconstruction through theater as a participatory cultural tool. We support theater production, events, interventions and artistic / interdisciplinary workshops, to stimulate dialogue, debate, social involvement, alternative art.
We aim to change the image of the city with all that it means in the eyes of children and to change the image of children about them in relation to all aspects of city life by reinvesting the schoolyards where they learn like NOW.
Through a series of workshops and a mini cultural and civic season that includes a play written and produced by the project, for 200 children and 2 schools in old neighborhoods and marked by vulnerabilities of the city, the school yard becomes the connecting space between home and class. The school yard is transformed into a world in which they learn and practice the roles they have or will have – in the family, in the community, in the profession, in society.
