Brave Kids Project Seeks Host Families for Children
The Polish website Kulturaonline.pl has reported that from June 22nd until July 11st, children from Zimbabwe, Rwanda, Norway, and the Czech Republic, as well as Chechen refugee children will take part in the 7th Brave Festival, which will be held in Wroclaw, Poland under the Brave Kids project.
However, the organizers need host families who the children can temporarily stay with during the festival. This year, Zimbabwe (6 kids), Rwanda (6 kids), the Czech Republic (6 kids) and Norway (8 kids) will send children to Wroclaw. They will be joined by two groups of children from Poland- Wroclaw (10 kids) and Warsaw- among whom are refugees from Chechnya (6 kids). The organizing committee is looking for families who would like to play host to kids coming to Brave Kids 2011 and would like, for three weeks, to guarantee the children’s accommodation, breakfast, supper, transport to the workshops and spectacles, and above all a commitment to and an interest in these little people.
The fundamental aim of the Brave Kids project is to present unique groups of young artists from regions of the world affected by various tragedies – natural disasters, political conflicts, homelessness, and poverty, as well as to show that art provides a chance for these children to overcome traumatic experiences and break free of destructive limitations.
If you want to take part in this project and host the kids, please contact:
