Start Now Workshop Project
Start Now is Gen Verde’s experiential learning project which promotes peace and dialogue through the arts. It fosters cultural intelligence, openness to diversity and respect towards all.
Through the sessions of workshops and rehearsals participants can discover and develop their own talents so as to try to overcome insecurities and find the skills and courage to be themselves.
It is designed for teenagers and young adults from 14 to 25 years old. Each project is customized according to the age groups and artistic levels of the participants.
The programme is normally spread over five days. It offers singing, dance, drama and percussion workshops in which young people work to create a final performanceon stage as a part of Gen Verde’s concert. A concluding moment also provides the opportunity for project evaluation. The project can take place in schools, universities, youth groups and communities, offering an open, flexible and inclusive programme.
