for ourselves and for others. What compassion means is to accept ourselves and others without judgment, without preference. We start with ourselves, accepting ourselves so we don’t continue the punishment.
It is a result of The Brave Kids Artistic Instructor Training and Practical Dissemination Project — a two-year (2017-2019) project of the Song of the Goat Theatre Association co-funded by Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. It aims to support an ongoing expansion of the Brave Kids Project while ensuring its continued quality and integrity. The core activities of the project include extended training workshops for artistic instructors, recruitment and training for new artistic instructors in new project sites, as well as the development and publication of an integrated online manual of the Brave Kids model. More than a static written document, this manual is an interactive platform that aims to engage a larger audience of new partners and collaborators, exchange best practices, and share the Brave Kids ethos on a larger scale.
