56# Parkour as a chance for refugees

Urban HeARTbeats is a project of the youth council Stuttgart in cooperation with five countries. It's aiming to help refugees to immigrate and feel home in their new cities with the help of Parkour, Break Dance and Graffiti.

The project started in July already, when within a week all artist came together in Stuttgart. Together with youth workers solutions were discussed how the different arts could be used to support immigrants. Workshop concepts were planned and we prepared for possible problems as linguistic, cultural and religious differences. In two workshops every group then realised the concepts.

The second round of Urban HeARTbeats is going to take place now in October. This time with the plan to built long lasting relations with the refugees homes to guarantee a positive effect on the lives of the refugees.

Why Parkour, Break Dance and Graffiti?

Newly arrived in Germany those arts are the perfect chance for refugees to get in touch with locals. Both Parkour and Break Dance are free and can be practiced everywhere. You don't need expenisve equipment, there are not specific times and places where to do it. Your origin doesn't matter, therefor you get the chance to express yourself, without the need to communicate a lot. And since language isn't important, its focus is more on the interaction and couriosity, for which every one will get a bit of freedom and feel of belonging in return.
