Optional Games Initiatives

Delphic Theatre

Every time and big movement needs its symbols by content and by sustainable construction – to give an idea, a movement a “home”. In religious societies it has its special places where people gather and praise their higher powers. Even sport and its disciplines became their place in society which can be viewed for example in the field of football, soccer, ice skating and last but not least with the Olympic Stadium as symbolic core of the Olympic Games. After the Delphic Games are over a Delphic Theatre can continue to tell its stories, being used as integrating place for the arts, cultures and education reflecting its sustainable strategy to support artistic and human skills.

Delphic Park

The Delphic Theatre could / should be surrounded with a Delphic Park in an ecological environment were sculptures of artists attending the Games might leave their artwork behind giving international flair and recreation to body and mind.
