Our 3rd Mobility was a combination of a festival event and Art&Literature orientated cultural and educational activities. A cinema-theatre in Thessaloniki city centre  hosted this Erasmus event, in which local authorities, representatives of the authorities of education , parents and students from Thessaloniki were invited. The programme of the event was arranged via the Twinspace and each partner country chose the best way to participate and contribute in this multi-national Erasmus A.Li.E.N. event: each partner school was invited to think of one of their country’s stories or folk tales – a beloved story, a story that we all wish to share with our partners as part of our National Oral Literature. Thus we all presented a piece of national/folk literature (i.e. traditional poems, songs, folk tales, emblematic stories) in an artful way (storytelling presentations, ppts, film or drama productions) Our invited storyteller from Scotland, Mr T.Porteus made a presentation: a creative mixture of oral literature pieces of work to emphasize on the common and diverse element, whereas one day before he hold a two hour storytelling workshop for teachers and students. Content of the training event: to introduce students and teachers the magic power of storytelling and get everyone understand the importance of storytelling at school and everyday life (on stage activities, trying out storytelling, discussion, Q&A session)
