Local Activities II: United States
Local Activities II of the project were implemented also in United States. The workshops were held at KBL headquarters, whilst the visibility activity at Riverbank State Park. Participants of the workshops were mainly teenagers and young people from New York City, who confirmed that they learnt a lot, whilst having fun. The methodology that have been used and the different tools based on non-formal education contributed to improve their knowledge and competences and made the learning process easier and more enjoyable.
The visibility activity included a cultural exchange battle with cyphers, exhibitions of several bboys and bgirls from different countries and a breaking battle. It was free of charge and everyone in the park was able to join it. Local population was mainly impressed on the different styles and ages that were represented at the event and they expressed interest in more community events that can provide positive and safe space for young people and local dancers to be able to creatively express themselves. The event was also a great opportunity to foster networking opportunities and future collaborations. The Erasmus+ Programme has also been presented and it has been underlined that it can give also opportunities to organisations out of Europe to participate.
