CAVAFY GOES TO SCHOOL: EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMME FOR SECONDARY SCHOOLS
CAVAFY GOES TO SCHOOL: EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMME FOR SECONDARY SCHOOLS
Can we get to know Cavafy through... comics, new technologies, and music? 

For the fourth year, the Cavafy Archive and the Onassis Cultural Centre enter the classroom. Speaking the language of students, they bring Cavafy’s poetry to the classroom in the most experiential way. 

Through six innovative workshops in schools in Attica, we approach the ‘sacred’ texts of the Alexandrian poet, using tools of the most ‘unexpected’ arts. Led by artists and writers, the workshops will take place from November 2016 to April 2017. Such creative and original readings enable students to better understand and interpret Cavafy’s poems. Creative results will highlight the contemporaneity of his poetry. 

Reading Cavafy... digitally | Experimental School of the University of Athens 
Liberated from the narrow limits of the book, words are turned into videos or digital images. Inspired by Cavafy’s poetry, students will use new technologies and create digital works, presenting his verses in different environments. 

Team: Nikos Vogiatzis (librarian and digital media designer) and Theodoros Chiotis (poet) 

What if Cavafy were… comics?| 3rd Gymnasium, Ilioupoli 
Cavafy’s poems turn into the great illustrated classics! How would ‘Ithaca’ ‘translate’ into images? Cavafy’s verses cοme to life as students create their own comics.  

Team: Thomas Tsalapatis (poet) and Tomek Giovannis (illustrator, comics artist) 

A school full… of Cavafy| Special Vocational High School, Egaleo 
Using various mediums of art and sculpture techniques, we turn the school into an absolute Cavafian environment! Through works of visual arts (both large-scale and small-scale), our school is transformed into a set, bringing to life Cavafy’s Alexandria. 

Team: Paky Vlassopoulou (visual artist) and Katerina Eliopoulou (poet) 

Cavafy’s verses in... electronic sound | 1st Gymnasium, Moschato  
How could a poem like ‘Voices’ translate into song? The Onassis Cultural Centre and the Cavafy Archive invite and challenge students and teachers to read and become inspired by Cavafy’s poetry, and create their own musical compositions drawing on his work.  

Team: Dimitris Patsaros (music producer and sound designer) and Maria Topali (poet) 

Cavafy’s work… through a camera lens| 4th Lyceum, Athens 
Cavafy: One poet, thousands of images. How can we depict the poem ‘Ithaca’? We trace images of our everyday life, which could, in a sense, allude to poems by Cavafy, immortalizing them in a photograph. 
Team: Marilena Stafylidou (photographer) and Panayotis Ioannides (poet) 

Cavafy... as performance | 5th Unified Lyceum, Petroupoli 
How can one experience Cavafy’s verses ‘A stranger, a total stranger’? The poet’s work comes to life through various methods that promote self-expression and team building. 

Team: Mary Zygouri (visual artist) and Christos Chryssopoulos (writer)  


The programme takes place in schools in Attica from November 2016 to April 2017, for students of the Gymnasium and the Lyceum. Participation is free.
