Workshop for Tiatrists held

Workshop for Tiatists held

Tiatr Academy of Goa (TAG) organized a special workshop exclusively for tiatrists on writing Konkani in Roman script correctly. The workshop was held yesterday 07th June 2010 at 10:00 am at TAG’s Conference Hall, Campal Trade Centre, Panjim. In all 42 tiatr artistes attended the workshop.

Shri. Tomazinho Cardozo, President of Tiatr Academy of Goa, guided the participants. It is a fact that tiatr artistes did not have any formal studies of Konkani in Roman script and hence they write in different ways. Shri. Cardozo put before the participants basics of writing correct Konkani in Roman script.

Correct formation of sentences, use of ‘C’, ‘Q’ and ‘Y’ alphabets were discussed thoroughly. So also the use of consonants for writing correct pronunciations of different words, were also discussed. The exercises in writing different words and sentences were also conducted. The participants actively interacted with the Resource person. The participants expressed that the workshop was effective in learning various aspects of writing Konkani in Roman script correctly.

Mr. Cardozo also assured that more workshops of this nature will be organized so that not only tiatr artistes but all others who wish to learn to read and write Konkani in Roman script correctly may participate in the same.

The workshop ended at 1:45 pm.
