Local Activities II

Local Activities II: Togo

Local Activ­i­ties II have been imple­ment­ed in April 2022 by the Togolese rep­re­sen­ta­tives who took part in the Train­ing Course of the project. Around 20 pro­fes­sion­al dancers of dif­fer­ent styles were the par­tic­i­pants of the work­shops “All for one and one for all” and “Migrants’ words”. Dur­ing the first work­shop the team worked on how to cre­ate empa­thy and pro­mot­ing the under­stand­ing on the migrant sit­u­a­tion through dance, whilst they adapt­ed the sec­ond one on how to use body lan­guage to cre­ate chore­og­ra­phy. They also used some of the tech­niques and games they learnt dur­ing the Train­ing and add some extra activ­i­ty to pre­pare chore­o­gra­phies for the vis­i­bil­i­ty activ­i­ty. Dur­ing the eval­u­a­tion, par­tic­i­pants made many pos­i­tive com­ments and they appre­ci­at­ed the activ­i­ties, the method­ol­o­gy based on the prin­ci­ples of non-for­mal edu­ca­tion and the con­tent relat­ed to the sit­u­a­tion of migrants.

Final­ly, the vis­i­bil­i­ty activ­i­ty took place on April 23 in the streets of the Kod­jovi­akopé Dis­trict of Lomé. Par­tic­i­pants stopped at sev­er­al places and per­formed dif­fer­ent styles of dance. Local pop­u­la­tion appre­ci­at­ed the show and asked for more infor­ma­tion about the project and the organisation.
