Project - Capoeira at the Park

Project Name: Capoeira at the park
Location: Hope Gardens - Kingston
Supported by: Capoeira Alafia/GCC-J, Capoeira students from Kingston
Implementation period: August 2006
Project Description: Students from Seaview Gardens, Mountain View, Mammee River, New Haven and the International Martial Arts Institute participated at this meeting and played Capoeira together for several hours. Refreshments and bus fares have been provided. The goal of this and many other “Capoeira at the Park” encounters, meanwhile organized regularly at different parks in Kingston, is to build up inter-community relations by engaging members of various communities in playing Capoeira with each other. As a result many friendships among students from different areas arouse and fears and prejudices of residents of former ‘unknown’ communities decreased.
