Legends: Nordic and Turkish mythology illustrated by children

Danish Cultural Institute Türkiye has been doing projects that create an environment for children to express their creativity while learning about Danish and Turkish culture. In this regard, DCI Turkey has been supporting ATTA festival for years by adding Danish cultural elements that ranges from workshops to plays.  


DCI Türkiye contributed to the ATTA Festival with a workshop on Legends: Nordic and Turkish mythology illustrated by children in collaboration with Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, Ministry of Culture Denmark, Virtual Museum of Children’s Art, The International Culture Panel of Denmark, Danish Cultural Institute, ATTA Festival, Atta Hygge and Billedskolen I Tvilingenhallen.  


This workshop focused on Nordic legend, Thor and Midgaard Serpent and Turkish legend Shahmaran. They both have something in common: Snakes. Danish Artists, Patricia Boberg and Katrine Marie Nielsen introduced the workshop to the children. The children drew and painted a huge snack and finger snakes in groups.  


The workshop took place at Gazhane Museum, Kadikoy. We had a great time with the children and seeing their creativity.
