In the framework of this project, one professional from the Italian organisation Espressione Hip Hop went to Togo for an observation period of 10 days with the main aim of learning and knowing in situ the working methodology, activities and best practices of Sol’Oeil d’Afrik, as well as providing and contributing with his ideas and suggestions.
‑Working process and activities of Sol’oeil d’Afrik;
‑Breaking workshops and other dance activities for local population;
‑Meetings and exchanges with local artists and groups;
‑Cultural visits and knowledge about Togo and Lomé.
MAIN ACQUIRED AND/OR IMPROVED COMPETENCES:
‑More awareness of a new and very different reality and ability to adapt to it;
‑More knowledge on the situation of Togo, including the laws, rules and habits of local population;
‑Learning basic steps of other types of dance out of my comfort zone.
I feel I have grown artistically and spiritually. Seeing such a different world so closely made me realizes how important it is to do something for others and help them… I will never forget this experience
