Children Converse about Refugee Phenomenon Through Art

Marina Sounoglou

Abstract


Children can talk about the refugee phenomenon through Art. The research methodology that followed is an intervention program in a fifth class of elementary school in Thessaloniki, Greece during the second semester of 2019. The children views were audited through conversation during the program, in which the children participated in a free discussion on the basis of filmography, poetry and artworks referring to the refugee phenomenon. The results of the survey present the children views on the refugee issue and their impressions from their contact with the Art. It was a useful way for children to express their emotions and opinions about the refugees. They feel empathy about the anxiety that may feel the refugee kids.
