Η ζωγραφική του Κώστα Γιαννακούρα: «Προβληματισμός»

Μικρός μαθητής "ατενίζει" σκεπτικός... ίσως... το μέλλον του!!!

Ο Κώστας 
Γιαννακούρας ήταν δάσκαλος στο σχολείο του χωριού για τέσσερα χρόνια τη δεκαετία του 1970. Οι ντόπιοι τον θυμούνται στοργικά ως το δάσκαλο που πραγματικά εκτιμούσε τους χωριανούς, αγαπούσε τα παιδιά και νοιαζόταν για το μέλλον τους.

Ως εκπαιδευτικός έδειχνε ιδιαίτερο ενδιαφέρον για τις δημιουργικές δραστηριότητες των παιδιών.

Φωτογραφία του Μήνα Φλεβάρη 2020: Γυμνασιόπαιδα 1957

Η φωτογραφία του μήνα Φλεβάρη 2020, αριθμός 98 στη σειρά, απεικονίζει το Θανάση Αντωνίου (1944-2011), δεξιά, και το Τάσο Τούντα, αριστερά, συμμαθητές από την Καρίτσα στο Γυμνάσιο Μολάων το 1957, φορώντας τα υποχρεωτικά μαθητικά πηλήκια με την κουκουβάγια.

Έτσι όπως τα έφερε η μοίρα, κάπου δέκα χρόνια κατόπιν οι δυο βρέθηκαν να εργάζονται και να μένουνε μαζί μετανάστες στη Νότια Αφρική.

Τη φωτογραφία παραχώρησε η Στέφανι Αντωνίου, κόρη του Θανάση.

Η φωτογραφία έχει επίσης δημοσιευτεί στις «Παλιές φωτογραφίες από την Καρίτσα Λακωνίας» στο Facebook.

Rug weaving in Geraki, a treasure of our national cultural heritage.

The traditional local craft of rug weaving on the standing loom, of which our neighbouring Geraki is most renowned, is now officially a treasured part of our national cultural heritage.

We are delighted to report that it is one of thirteen significant cultural practices from throughout Greece that were recently inscribed into the national inventory of cultural heritage.

What is the National Inventory of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Greece?

According to the official website the National Inventory is the filing of the elements of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Greece in the form of an inventory. It aims to provide a valid and up-to-date picture of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Greece (Frequently Asked Questions). The aim pursued through the National Directory of ICH of Greece, is for the bearers of ICH (communities, groups, even individuals) to be able to share their own cultural experience with the domestic and international audience, to talk about their collective identity, to formulate proposals for the study and, above all, the safeguarding of their intangible cultural heritage.

The information related to each element of intangible cultural heritage that is inscribed on the National Inventory is depicted in the “form of the element of Intangible Cultural Heritage”, which is completed and updated on a regular basis by the community of the bearers of the element, in cooperation with the Directorate of Modern Cultural Assets and Intangible Cultural Heritage of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports with the assistance of the National Scientific Committee for the Implementation of the Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage. (Detailed instructions for completing the Form).

According to Article 12 of the Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage “To ensure identification with a view to safeguarding, each State Party shall draw up, in a manner geared to its own situation, one or more inventories of the intangible cultural heritage present in its territory.” These inventories should be updated regularly and each Member State, when submitting its periodic report to the Commission (see here : for the periodic report submitted by Greece in 2015), must provide data about the national inventory/ies of intangible cultural heritage.
