RISE Tesoro Sekreto

RISE Tesoro Sekreto is one of the community arts projects Faizah did as a representative of Deira Creative Volunteer Platform.

It is impossible to describe what we went through with each other, but we did it all together. We did it as a team; such a great team of loving and caring people working together towards the same goal. To give these Kids hope, show them that they matter and that they can accomplish anything they put their minds to. That they have the strength and the power to be who they want to be and that they have a voice, a voice that should be heard. Our tool to get to them was DANCE. And oh they danced and they danced and they danced. They rose up to a level that they never thought that they could reach.

RISE Tesoro Sekreto; a unique collaboration between Deira Creative Volunteer Platform, Junadry Leocadia and Dance and More Foundation Curaçao. Children from the forgotten areas of Curacao were invited to participate in the RISE Tesoro Sekreto project for two weeks and discover their hidden treasures.

The project contained a social element (collaboration between young people from different layers of society), an educational element (the rehearsals were built around themes given by the participates) and a presentation element (the dance shows)
