Bodies of Change is a space for creativity, art and inspirational sparks where we will share Theatre, Dance, Circus , Body Expression and other Embodied Arts methods to be used in youth work as powerful tools for developing a sense of Connection and Belonging to our communities through an Empathy-based approach.

opened the realistic perspective for future projects and networking.
