Welcome to Green Tales project

Where the arts meet nature!

Tales have been an integral part of human cultural heritage since ancient times, passed down through generations for their educational value and ability to kindle the imagination. They allow us to journey into realms where possibilities are limitless, enriching both our souls and our lives.

In a world where humanity’s impact on the environment is more profound than ever, primary school children with the support of professional artists will embark on a creative journey and explore artistic processes using the four elemental forces of Earth, Air, Water, and Fire that sustain life on our planet for creating new tales. Using their creativity children will rediscover their connection to the natural world and treat it with the utmost respect.
