This year’s edition of ‘Street Delivery’ brought together artists and skilled artisans.  New Acropolis volunteers organized several workshops for all those interested, including the creation of textile dolls, handmade jewelry such as traditional bracelets, and painting of archaeological reproductions based on the works found in the world’s largest museums.

The ‘Rosetta Stone’ workshop offered the opportunity to manufacture reproductions of this famous stone which represented the decryption key to hieroglyphic writing.

Last, but not least, people interested in philosophy had the chance to discuss Timeless Values in order to help them redefine a healthy attitude towards work during an open discussion called ‘Youth and Work’.

New Acropolis Mumbai organized a debate entitled “Empowering real change”, in collaboration with the Indian Express newspaper. Speakers included the educator and environmental specialist Sonam Wangchuk, the philanthropist Tsarina Screwvala (Swades Foundation) and the philosopher Yaron Barzilay (Director of New Acropolis in India).

With over 150 attendees, the presenters at this ’round table’ emphasized the need for a sustainable change in society, beyond quick and immediate fixes, which are of little relevance and lead to uncertainty and despair. A collective investigation showed that the “Post-truth” world  (Word of the Year 2016, Oxford Dictionary), leads to individuals’ inability to dream and to aspire to a better world. It turns out that our challenges could be more possible to carry out, redefining how society provides education. Ultimately, the responsibility rests with the individual at the time of choosing to participate in the change.

The program ‘Child for the Good’ provides social, educational and medical services on a regular basis and free of charge, to children from 4 to 16 years of age, in low-income communities living near the New Acropolis Brasilia Center. The project goal is clear; to provide a better future for these children and to contribute to their human development through the theoretical and practical training in music, ballet, martial arts as well as educational support in various subjects.

The program currently serves more than one hundred girls in the ballet workshops (baby class, initial, basic and intermediate), and nearly one hundred girls and boys in the workshops of choral singing, musical education, flute, violin, viola, cello and guitar.

Last December the 2016 course wrap-up celebration was held at the Poupex Theater, which for the second consecutive year made its stage available to New Acropolis.

All the children presented to their parents and the director of the program, Luis Carlos Marques Fonseca, the result of a year of hard work, perseverance and overcoming limitations.

Volunteers were accompanied by members of a waste management company and by students of a local elementary school and their teacher. The nesting boxes were made and painted by the students. The walk along the hillside of the mountain was enlivened with storytelling and games while the children looked for suitable trees to set up the nesting boxes.
