European Solidarity Corps (formerly called EVS)
European Youth Arts Engagement – Exploring and sharing best practice.
Our projects participant’s developed the skills and competences in arts engagement projects and practical festival coordination and management, building their capacities and capabilities to better implement future youth led arts engagement projects in their own national contexts. The partners within this application are producers of large-scale carnival/festival events within their own national contexts. These events recruited a wide range of volunteers who assisted in the planning, implementation and delivery of these key cultural activities. The project participants assisted in the development of professional festival events in France (Toulouse)
Number and profile of participants: 9 young people from UK in total, from backgrounds of less opportunity Some of our other participants dropped out prior to the ESC taking place. Our partner was not able to retain their ESC recruits some of whom found work or chose other commitments. they therefore did not have a outgoing ESC group participate in this project.
9 young people engaged in the project;
3 youth arts project workers;
1 performance projects presented within large-scale festival carnival event (Toulouse)
Project visibility (through large-scale events) 100,000 people/audiences
Brouhaha International (BI) is focused on celebrating diversity and widening participation within the arts. At home and abroad arts engagement work has enabled BI to promote and develop the idea that diversity is linked to creativity.
In the coming years BI intend to strengthen carnival and festival work, developing organizations ability to deliver new and exciting cultural initiatives and arts projects.
Future activities will continue to embrace and celebrate a diverse range of work with a commitment to the realization of performing arts projects in public spaces, on the streets, in park, in community venues and site specific outdoor locations. BI strive to provide professional platforms and opportunities for artistic and cultural excellence and as BI move forward to create great art, without losing sight of our purpose, vision and core values.
