What’s Your Story ?! Creative Community Projects carries out this sub-project in collaboration with Fundashon Rebiba Skalo Abou (FRESA), www.ScharlooAbou.com and Street Art Skalo. The community project for the children is made possible with the support of Active Chance, Representation from the Netherlands, Spigt Dutch Caribbean and the special floor paint is sponsored by Sherwin Williams.
At the beginning of 2019, What’s Your Story ?! already working with Fundashon FRESA with the children from the neighborhood to create a unique art sports field in Fleur de Marie. They then thought that they would like that vulnerable group want to learn more creative skills. By giving them more lessons, involving them more in the beautification from the neighborhood, but also by bringing them together with children from outside the neighborhood, people hope to do more can contribute to a positive development of the neighborhood.
The children could attend the workshops from the neighborhood free of charge and a group of children from outside the neighborhood could take a small fee.
