In the autumn of 2018, we are launching a new version of the Brave Kids project, which will be addressed to children from Wrocław. We want the young artists living permanently in Wrocław to take part in the unique workshops based on our ‘kids teach kids’ model.
Children will be preparing together the final performance to show that Wrocław is a culturally diverse city, where the youngest generation of residents can make friends regardless of the country of origin of their parents, the skin color or the neighborhood in which they live. Thus, for the first time, we will be organizing the Brave Kids project, which so far has been visited by children from the farthest corners of the world, only with the participation of artistic groups from Wrocław.
Brave Kids has been organized by the Song of the Goat Theatre Association since 2009 under the patronage of UNESCO, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ombudsman for Children (Poland).
It is a unique cultural-educational project dedicated to uniting children from different parts of the world in a common creative endeavor. They come with different life experiences, artistic talents, religions and traditions. The children are joined by the common desire to work together, openness towards other people and the incredible ability to overcome barriers and limitations of the adult world.
So far over than 1000 children and young people from over than 20 countries and 4 continents have taken part in the project.

MODEL OF WORKING
The Brave Kids project and its unique model of working with children have an effect on the young artists as well as their communities both here in Europe and in other parts of the world, strengthening self-confidence, increasing intercultural sensitivity and friendship. The workshops are conducted by the experienced artistic instructors, pedagogues and performers, who are ready to support children in their passion of joint creation, sharing and exchange in an atmosphere of respect and understanding. Here "kids teach kids" resulting in extraordinary performances presented to the public.
