Education project takes children to theatres

THE PROJECT called So Slovnaftom do divadla / With Slovnaft to the Theatre has enabled more than 10,000 schoolchildren to go to the theatre, via “culture vouchers” offered by the Culture Ministry. In its first year, pupils travelled by bus to see shows for children in several select Slovak theatres.

THE PROJECT called So Slovnaftom do divadla / With Slovnaft to the Theatre has enabled more than 10,000 schoolchildren to go to the theatre, via “culture vouchers” offered by the Culture Ministry. In its first year, pupils travelled by bus to see shows for children in several select Slovak theatres.

The theatres included the Malá Scéna STU in Bratislava, the Jókai Theatre in Komárno and the Thália and Puppet theatres in Košice. In total, more than 27,000 “culture vouchers” were used for the project. These vouchers are issued by the Culture Ministry and distributed among students of elementary and secondary schools and allow children to attend cultural events that they may otherwise not get to experience.

Both Slovnaft and the ministry agreed that the project succeeded in its main goal of enabling school pupils in villages and small towns to see good-quality performances in theatres. The ministry distributes the vouchers and Slovnaft arranges transportation of the pupils to the cultural venues. The ministry informed the TASR newswire that the project will continue in the next school year.
