Visiting the cartoon exhibition “MADE IN EUROPE”


Teens in action

In February our school drama team was enthusiastic visiting the cartoon exhibition “MADE IN EUROPE” created by the award-winning cartoonist Michalis Kountouris ( The exhibition was hosted in the Basilica of Saint Mark and was dedicated to the refugee issue. The pupils are taking part in the European programme related to refugee matters and had the opportunity to have a face-to-face interaction with the artist asking him questions and sharing thoughts and feelings with him.

After that the team visited the “info point” office, an information point office established by the Municipality of Heraklion, the Tourism Department, that makes use of innovative technologies designed and developed by the Institute of Computer Science (ICS) of the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas (FORTH). The pupils were informed about the history and culture of our city through a wide variety of modern technological information systems such as infocloud touch screen, live desk map, interactive printed material, interactive disk of Festos, video and picture wall, interactive illuminated stand and many more. The main entrance of the office is decorated with a high-aesthetic interactive sculpture inspired by the Labyrinth of Knossos Palace that illustrates quotes from Nickos Kazantzakis’ texts. In the “info point” office the old meets the modern and the game meets the knowledge!
