‘Peace Begins with Me’
The ‘Peace Begins with Me’ project is offered to children in Year 6 and youth aged 14 to 25 years. It aims to offer an experience of art as a universal language which transcends barriers caused by race, religion or gender. This gives an opportunity to foster learning in relation to citizenship, inclusion and diversity.
The twenty-one members of Gen Verde, a performing arts group of the Focolare Movement, work alongside groups of young people, preparing them to perform alongside the band in a concert. Respect and openness are the norm during the creative and rehearsal time.
The project includes workshops in song, dance, drama and percussion. Participants develop existing talents and discover new ones.
The day will start with Registration at 10.00am and end after a concert open to all at 6.30pm.
Gen Verde is a group of musicians and performing artists with a distinctly international profile. The current line-up is 21 women from 13 different countries. The band has given over 1500 performances in tours of Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and South and North America, achieving a strong and popular track record for its concerts, workshops and for cultural and educational events.
The values at the heart of its artistic goal: to contribute towards creating a global culture of peace, dialogue and unity. To date Gen Verde has released a total of 67 albums.
