Darue Malungo, Recife, Brazil

Working with Children and young people at Darue Malungo Afro-Brazilian dance centre in Chão De Estrelas, Recife, Northeast of Brazil.

This was our first Latin American  residency under the Save the Children pARTners Project (Feb 99-Dec 01).Funded by the National Lottery, this pioneering arts project spanned over three years and included visits to Brazil, Peru, Cuba and touring the UK. The project explored how to use the creative arts to explain the UN Convention for Children’s Rights to children. It involved running workshops for children and adults internationally as well as reinforcing links with agencies, artists and educators in Latin America/The Caribbean and the UK. It resulted in the production of a teaching pack and a touring road show across primary schools and education centres in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
