The goal is having a space with artistic and educational activities for every children and young people, without discrimination!
Fernando Pessoa already knows that "man dreams, the work is born" and so began our dream.
It all started with a fundend social project, "inSERir com Escolhas”, wich began in January 2013, wich more than 300 children and young people had free ascess to recreational and educational activities. However, the financial support is over and a new ideia is born: "Academia C+" (C+ Academy).
At the moment, we have several organizations to support this new project, wich are BOOM - Youth Association, parish council of Sta Iria Azóia, São João daTalha and Bobadela, Parents of children and young people, graduated technicians in the social area and privates entities, that together support some material resources needed to achieve this goal. However, there's still much to achieve, including the sustainability of the project.
We want to create a space, open Monday to Friday, where we engage children in their own learning. We will value and encourage characteristics such as creativity and imagination, where children have access to artistic activities and promoting respect, equality, understanding, security and solidarity.
The activities will be developed in 3 areas: playful (dance, painting, theatre,...), educational (study support, digital literacy,...) and community (parent meetings, social coffe,..).
We believe that we can make this dream a reality because “Everything seems impossible until it's done”, Nelson Mandela.
