The group was born thanks to the motivation of some young people from the neighborhood of Boris Vega, and with the artistic support of the circus group ‘Massa Gent Sense Masses‘ from Barcelona. The five young people began working together in September 2012 with the name ‘The Nest of the Arts Collective‘. This is when they started their artistic practice with a social focus and environmental awareness. In 2014, the group initiated artistic workshops for 40 boys and girls - teenagers and young people from the neighborhood of Boris Vega - and 5 of them will participate in the Brave Kids Project 2019. Art in its many facets has served as an instrument of personal improvement, pulling them out from very hard personal situations, showing them other life alternatives, perceiving life with optimism, accepting themselves and establishing harmonious relationships.
The participation of the group in Brave Kids is possible thanks to the cooperation with KinderKulturKarawane from Hamburg, Germany.
