Educational Programme

‘Make popular culture your own’

Cases de la Festa educational programme

The project is intended to offer children and young people greater access to popular and traditional culture, through experimentation and participation. The activities are adapted to the different needs of each educational level and designed for the development of training in values, knowledge and the recognition of heritage and traditions as expressions of collective memory and identity, while structuring knowledge through procedurally motivating means.

Teachers are to be given educational materials that are specially designed for pre- and post-visit classroom activities, so participants can further investigate and complement the activity sessions at Cases de la Festa. These educational materials can be found below in the explanation on each workshop. You will also find more resources and documents shared by all the workshops at the end of the page.
