The Great Red Wall has always been there. But Little Mouse’s friends
did not know why that wall was there. Nor did they know what was beyond the
wall. All they knew was that they were terrified of the wall.
Will he find the courage to explore the unknown? Will he be able to
take that first step into the world where freedom and possibilities await him?

We were living an ordinary day at school. The principal suddenly
entered the classroom. He said that every class has a president and we
urgently need to elect a class president. We would choose the class president
with a vote. I wonder which game would determine the presidential election?
Is there a winner in every game? Can every winner become president? Is there
a link between winning and being strong? Can every strong one be president?
He won the game and became president, and everything started after that.
What happened? I do not know him, we will decide on the workshop. We
welcome every child to the tail-snatching workshop, designed for children
aged 7 to 8, considering the concepts of justice and peer bullying.

In creative drama processes, which are constructed based on a
situation, a problem or a conflict, the participants try to resolve conflicts in a
fictional place and role, and to look at situations from different perspectives in
depth. Participants carry their problem-solving skills, attitudes and thoughts

experiences (experiences) in the creative drama process. In this study, based
on situations that may be encountered in daily life, situations that deal with
the roles and forms of cyberbullying in the cyberbullying process will be
fictionalized. It will focus on the effects of cyberbullying situations on young

Someone primarily related the success of theater performances
for young audiences to establishing a genuine communication with the
audience and offering them an aesthetic experience. For this, it is necessary
to be familiar with the world of the audience, to find interesting stories for him
and to structure them in an aesthetic language. In this study, we will discuss
dramaturgy as creating form and meaning, and we will examine theoretically
this process and practically through examples

A philosophical look at Karl Lear with children...
Based on King Lear, one of Shakespeare’s most important works, we
will conduct a P4C investigation with children aged 11-14.
P4C, philosophy for children, is a method for teaching and learning by putting
philosophical research at the center of the lesson, making children think with
questions directed at children.
In the workshop, accompanied by an expert facilitator, children
establish philosophical dialogues with their peers and construct some
concepts; We aim it at making evaluations by combining the world they live
in and their own experiences with philosophical questions. We aim it at raising
awareness of children about theater and its works.

In the game, a person who is alone is asked why his friends may have
moved away from him. With the answers received, the framework of the story
character is established, and the story takes shape. Children’s answers focus
on negative behaviors such as rude behavior, lying, whining, and selfishness.
Thus, these behaviors and their consequences form the theme of the game.
Children become part of the game, influencing how the story might progress
and adding examples from their own life to the story. The power to change the
game makes you feel the power to change your life.
