Capoeira Terranossa

Project

Capoeira Terranossa: Proyecto Social Primavera

Location

Bogota, Colombia

Target

Development of youth and children that are in vulnerable condition that live in the peripheral areas of Bogota.

Impact

The use of capoeira as an empowerment tool, starting with their own body and then reaching collective empowerment.

Terranosa is a group that has been working for around 6 years in Colombia. Their work focuses on developing social processes in vulnerable and high-risk areas for children and young people, managing spaces with other community processes for the development of classes.

The social work that Terranossa develops is very important for the peripheral communities of the city, because they provide an opportunity for children and young people to develop their collective capacities, at the same time that they combat the social inequalities that appear in their territory and the negative values as egoism, individualism, disrespect and asocial thoughts. In this way, capoeira is used as a space for everyone to meet, share experiences, fears and challenges and build communities based on equity, love and peace.

The Terranosa group focuses on generating processes of empowerment, such as the appropriation of the body and treats it as a sacred territory that needs to be cultivated with respect and good habits. After presenting this concept, they are extended to the recognition of colleagues and to the exchange to build a community based on respect and communication.

Capoeira Onda

Project

Capoeira Onda

Location

Santa Fe, Argentina

Target

The main objective of the project is to develop a practice of capoeira’s art that contributes to the inclusion of social classes, genders / sexualities, ages, abilities / disabilities, ethnicities / races.

Impact

The focus of our project exceeds capoeira as a mere sport practice. From a cultural and social approach in a broad sense, we encourage the development of collaborative, horizontal and non-competitive practices. Through integral education and education understood as an instance of collective and not individualistic development, we encourage the formation of trainers to spread this non-profit art in our city.
