The show sums up a two-weeks artistic work of Brave Kids Gdańsk 2021. We will see what the kids have to say about themselves and their interests, have the chance to get to know their talents, emotions, and most of all – feel the magic of a true meeting, cooperation and freedom of expression.
The final show is prepared by the young participants with the support of art instructors: Weronika Figurska-Zięba, Ewa Hubar and Ola Mońko.
The idea behind Brave Kids is encounter. And this one is special because its most important aspect is DIVERSITY in all its meanings: individual, cultural, linguistic and social. Due to pandemic restrictions, this year’s edition took form of a meeting focused on searching for diversity among the children living in the same city. Local Brave Kids is a proposition of transforming years long experience of Brave Kids project and a unique “kids teach kids” work model into actions within Poland in cooperation with local institutions and groups who for years have been neighbours and know don’t really know each other. We are opening on what is hidden under masks of everyday life and begin to look for talents towards us and our own neighbourhood!
How does it work?
Brave Kids is a project based on artistic and educational actions dedicated to local art groups and individuals interested in creative encounters. Workshops are led by experienced instructors. They work in “kids teach kids” method which focuses on revealing potential of each individual participant who, finally, share their talent with the rest of the group. The workshops strengthen freedom of expression and creativity of the kids through artistic activities: movement, dance, visual arts, music and team play. The idea behind the workshops is to enhance children’s self confidence, develop their cooperation skills and creative work in group, communication and empathy.
The event takes place as part of Multicultural Pomerania project.
The event is past of Brave Kids 2021 financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage from the Culture Promotion Fund and the City of Wrocław.
