Cultural Awareness Workshops

Thought provoking exploration of social issues

The Street Children of South America

Course for at least a weekend [or equivalent] for youth and school groups.

An exploration into the plight of the street children of Guatemala, Peru, Columbia and Bolivia through performing and creative arts such as: drama, poetry/creative writing, singing, composition, painting and textiles. Courses will be tailored based on a skeleton programme.

The cultural awareness course ‘The Street Children of South America’ was piloted at the officially opening of The Old Mill Centre in February 2008. Barbara and Mick treated their performing & creative arts group StageLights to a thought-provoking weekend. Creative exploration of the devastating plight of street children was interspersed with fun, laughter and delicious South American cuisine.
