Oral transmission session at Escola Profissional do Pico

On May 10th 2019 we organized a session for the whole school community on Oral Transmission, which is one of the very important topics of the project.

We invited Manuel Goulart Serpa who is very knowledgeable on anything pertaining to Azorean cultural heritage.

It was a very interesting moment in which our guest spoke, with passion, about the history of the Island, the difficult ways of life of the people who cultivated the harsh lands and the economic importance of whale hunting which has now become a great touristic attraction in the form of Whalewatching.

After the event, the participants were asked to write some sentences about the stories which were told that most captured their interest, to be displayed in the school entrance.
