Street is Culture is an international non-profit social organization that embodies a movement and community which celebrates the diversity and creativity of street culture using art, dance styles and sports activities “from the street” to challenge and improve the lives of youth throughout the world.
Our goal is to create a local and a global community based on recreational and educational programme to empower young people. At the local level, this will be done by working in partnership with local authorities to establish dedicated Street is Culture Training Centres. Here, the street styles will be used as subjects for a structured annual educational and recreational programme delivering courses, workshops, events and camps. The popularity of street activities makes them a perfect “hook” to engage young people and bring them into a positive environment to learn and socialize. This will have the additional result of helping to prevent youth offence and recidivism. We would gather and engage the community by broadcasting information, events, competitions, and other content of the activities taking place in the training centres.
Our mission is to provide a means of engaging with youth in their environment throughout role models, creating positive opportunities for self-improvement.
The vision is to set up a series of academies all over the world, reaching for global presence, where expert trainers teach local youth a range of popular “street culture” activities, also known as “street styles”. Our actual plan is to start with discipline courses in partnership with existing NGOs and to give them the opportunity to get new participantes as well.
