We facilitated the process in which the Street Angels co-created with slum dwellers the ‘Street Angels Slum Festival’, based on local needs and locally proposed solutions. Through several arts-based activities, such as community painting, arts galleries, the ‘garbage collecta’ and music performance, people from in- and outside the slums got connected.
Slum dwellers claim to feel more accepted and have more chances to develop themselves. Stichting DOEN has supported this project with €5.500,- . In 2015 a new Slum Festival was organized and the growing concept comes back yearly since. DOEN kept supporting the community in the years after and each year the Slum Festival grew bigger and bigger, having thousands of visitors each edition.
