Dance Creatively, Look For Your Identity And Fly

#BRAINCANDIES LIVE SESSION 6 RECAP

Our 6th edition of #BRAINCANDIES LIVE SESSION was a success. We were in a new location (TAC), we tried a new format with the aim of engaging people even more, we learned a lot and, most importantly, we made people come together, get out of their comfort zone and getting back home not only with more knowledge but also with experience.

Sudden Improvisation and never knowing what you are gonna do next is what makes #BRAINCANDIES LIVE SESSIONS so special.

There is still work to do to make #BRAINCANDIES LIVE SESSION the Goosebump generating event we want it to become, but every time, we are getting closer and closer.

We had 30 people in the audience and 6 speakers. In terms of UN development goal, we have embraced our favourite one (Quality of Education). We gave a platform to Ranil to present his project to empower young Sri Lankan people in his country of origin, through the power of Hip Hop.

Ranil got the chance, thanks to #BRAINCANDIES, to speak at REDx, an event organize by the Red Cross and by one other of our speakers, Peter. Ram helped us to address the theme of Peace and Justice, sharing stories about being Indian in Europe, talking about how we are all similar when it comes to nature of being a Human being. Luis talked about development in Technology to help humans enhance their senses and Hans made us aware of what we can do to become more creative.

Aiman made the night more interactive then ever, making more than half of the audience come on stage for little “wedoEXPERIENCES”.
