Situation

New perspectives can change lives and minds. Through our engagement programme we seek to build confidence and self-esteem amongst a generation of young people who have been disproportionately affected by COVID and the subsequent restrictions on their lives. We seek to re-engage individuals with their communities, to re-establish social interaction and provide creative safe spaces for play, artistic expression and to share thoughts, ideas and forge new friendships and networks.

Solution

We will work across the country in regional hubs developing co-ordinated engagement activity across the 4 strands below: Co-created activities and performances for young people centred around Parkour. Innovative programmes to support a new generation of artists and athletes. Workshops for schools, with support resources for teachers, students and parents. Creative residencies for communities connecting movement, storytelling and the relationship between people and their environment.

  • It gave me great pleasure seeing the young people grow in confidence within themselves and with each other as their trust and friendship evolved. I look forward to working with Anja and her team again.

  • Because of lockdown I haven’t been doing my swim training. The Parkour Park helped me come back to sport and keeping fit
