Summary/Abstract: Katarzyna Nowaczyk raises the issue of adult illiteracy in European countries, seen not only through the context of education, but also in the spheres of culture and the economy. The author is interested in educational initiatives which use non-artistic theater as creative working tools, as in the work of the Nuovi Linguaggi organization. Nowaczyk primarily focuses on her experiences that came with participating in workshops at the Alcatraz center (Libera Università di Alcatraz) led by Jacopo Fo. She describes exercises carried out in the framework of the adult literacy project, as well as theatrical inspiration in the teaching process.
