During 2019 thanks to a group of German guest artists at the Foundation School of Solidarity (Granada), a permanent workshop of Art and Psychomotricity is consolidated in ZANCOS, an initiative that is still alive thanks to a group of young ex-protected from Morocco.
These young people have decided through this activity to rise up and not to give in to the brutality that they often live in the street, to integrate themselves in our occupational project and to inspire other young people in their same situation by creating the “Stankos Ramadan” Stilts Company.
Creation of performances based on exploration and play on stilts. Participation in social activities. Creation of courses and workshops in juvenile centers, prisons and other people in vulnerable situations. The teachers are the same people who are artists on stilts (also people at risk) who change roles and accompany the educational process. They are accompanied by social operators and artists.
Stankos Ramadan offers artists who want to work there lodging (linked to Fundacion Escuela de Solidaridad), daily meals. Spaces to create, work and rehearse. Networks for diffusion in the city. Emotional support and accompaniment for the work with the target group. Direct linkage with different target groups: migrants, refugees, women who suffered gender violence. Networking with other organizations and with the city council.
