BRAVE KIDS TOGETHER
Brave Kids Together is a unique youth mobility project designed to provide the space for young artistic including people with disability, a group that experiences fewer opportunities to participate in both international mobility and artistic programming. We developed the project in response to a specific need expressed to us by a group of deaf and hard of hearing youth who were in the audience at a performance of our Brave Kids project. Upon viewing the performance, which was collaboratively created by children from many different countries and artistic traditions, these youth expressed a wish to be able to experience something similar themselves: to share and exchange their artistic practices and collaborate on a public performance.
The main component of the project is artistic workshops based on a “kids teach kids” peer learning method. Participants will teach one another their artistic skills and collaborate to create a common performance that combines and expands upon each group's practices to be presented to the public. Given the specific communication needs of participants, group leaders with both sign language and English skills will support the workshops.
We plan to organise the Brave Kids Together pilot project this Autum and gather children from European countries that practice any kind of art and are eager to meet their peers and create the common performance.
