Street is Culture (IS) is a social enterprise aimed at improving young people’s outcomes by using BMX, Skateboarding, Inline Skating, Parkour & Free Running, B-boying, and Graffiti & Street Art as subjects for a structured educational and recreational annual programme delivering courses, exams, master classes, exhibitions, events and camps, which will all be run in dedicated Training Centres in partnership with local authorities.
Based on the large popularity of street disciplines on social networks, Street is Culture vision is to build a Community bringing together the followings that each of the street disciplines already has. This will be done by broadcasting on the web information, events, and the contents of the activities taking place in the Training Centres.
Exploiting the high engagement potential of street disciplines, Street is Culture mission is to bring young people into a positive environment in which to learn and socialize, helping them to develop important life skills and with the additional result of contributing to the prevention of youth offending and re-offending.
The first Training Centre will be opening in Haringey in 2014, and others are expected to be opening in key identified London boroughs throughout the year. This will then spiral into a national and international (already confirmed opening in Milan May 2015) project backed by highly visible media in order to create additional social impact.
