    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;The school, as an educational space for cultivating cultural sensitivity, critical thinking, and aesthetics, enables the development of cultural activities - from infancy to adolescence - through the implementation of cultural events and / or activities, participation in cultural events and/or programs and browsing in cultural and/or artistic web sites. At the same time, as a social operator, it is a miniature of the society in which its living potential lives and is developed. Its goal is to learn and develop the children&amp;#39;s organizational and management skills that will help them to meet the challenges and demands of the modern environment. The purpose of the present study is to analyze the concept of cultural activity in the elementary school and to examine the importance of applying innovative models - such as the CPFM. The stydy&amp;rsquo;s another&amp;nbsp; perpuse is to reveal the educational benefits which come from organizing a theatrical performance. The study consists of two modules. The first - theoretical - attempts to delineate the concept of cultural activity in the school&amp;rsquo;s environment, through a variety of theoretical perspectives and bibliographical research. At the same time, the stages of organizing and shaping a cultural activity in the information and knowledge society are studied. Examples are given of how these steps could be applied in education and in particular in the school environment. Also, it emphasizes the importance of innovative models such as the CPFM in shaping a cultural activity, and highlights their educational character. The second section - practical - attempts to link the theoretical views, presented in the first part, with the structured as a whole, to the school&amp;rsquo;s reality through the organization of a play. The stages are presented in a sequence through the analysis of the play&amp;#39;s design and are linked to the elementary schools curriculum at the interdisciplinary level. In addition, the educational benefits resulting from this process are identified, and the importance and role of Innovative Models&amp;nbsp; in the schools environment are highlighted.&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt;</description>
