Özet

The research presented here is based on the idea of using creative drama, which adopts the principle of learning by doing and experiencing, as a method to teach individuals about the artistic and historical elements of religious architecture and increase their sensitivity to cultural heritage. This particular study involved introducing Bursa Grand Mosque to 9th grade students, with the aim of raising their awareness of their cultural heritage through processes based on creative drama. The positive feedback from students showed the project was a success, and the authors propose that similar programmes in other mosques will provide historical and cultural contributions in terms of forming a connection between yesterday, today and tomorrow, and having a long-lasting, lifelong impact on the lives of students.
