Street Child World Cup is more than a game; it is also an opportunity for street children to express their experiences and hopes through art workshops.
The Fringe festival ran throughout the 10 days engaging with the young people across a range of skills, from technology based workshops, to the choir, photography, cooking, yoga and other skills, it was a chance for everyone to get involved in something totally different, meet people from all of the teams and learn something new.
Our daily wrap up show gave the opportunity for everyone to celebrate everything that had happened during the day. There were performances from the different teams, films of the matches and the chance for our Late Show hosts to interview the people involved.
With breathtaking views and cultural vibrancy, it’s not surprising that the Vidigal Community has become an artistic heartbeat in Rio de Janeiro. We spent two days with the community in partnership with the Rio Department of Leisure and Education and the theatre company Nós do Morro. The first day took place on Tuesday 1 April with the girls and the following day Wednesday 2 April was for the boys.
