Brave Kids Workshops
"Kids teach kids"Workshops are at the heart of the whole project, the target of which is to create a common ground for work and play, to share skills, and to build children's attitudes of tolerance and openness for other cultures. In the process of the workshop, children learn from each other according to the principle of "kids teach kids".
In this way, students become teachers--figuring out how to sort out and group their skills and how best to teach them to others. Children leading classes together participate in them with greater commitment. Artistic Instructors assist children to help them to find the best way to transfer their skills.
Most children are not used to taking on the role of the teacher. They do not realize their own skills and treat them as random and normal. We want every child to learn to be an authority with a sense of self-worth and uniqueness and to treat one another like treasures that should be taken care of.
First stage of workshops During the first stage, for two weeks the children and their caregivers will be divided into several workshop groups assigned to specific cities. Each process will be lead by two Polish artistic leaders - experienced educators, practitioners working with children, and group of volunteers - people interested in non-formal artistic education of children (students of pedagogy, psychology, art direction, etc. ).
Second stage of workshops After two weeks of workshops all of the children working simultaneously in Brave Kids cities come together to one place to continue common workshops. Over 10 days they prepare a Grand Finale performance to be presented to an audience in Wroclaw.
Brave Kids Grand FinaleThe stage in the Centennial Hall will be on fire on 11 July 2017 thanks to emotions coming from 130 Brave Kids hearts from all over the world. The Grand Finale will touch the members of the audience by its simplicity, sensitiveness, tolerance and openess to others and different cultures as well as it will delight viewers with artistic skills of the project participants.
The majority of the artists will have a chance to perform for the first time on the stage, in colourful costumes, in the glare of the lights, in front of the big audience. Kids will never forget that performance. Casting mind back to this moments during the hard times will allow them to realise that dreams do come true.
