Integration, diversity and equality – Freestyle Phanatix
Freestyle Phanatix as a group are working actively and daily with integration issues and are permeated by an open acceptance of different social and ethnic backgrounds.
The group is multi cultural and multi ethnic, and one of our goals is that this should be viewed as an advantage also outside of our group. Our artists become natural role models for the youth and children they meet as audience and workshop participants, and we can see them accept our accepting unity.
Freestyle Phanatix has always been a motley crew, and our differences are one of our strengths. We demonstrate how different social and ethnic backgrounds can be an advantage and we are one example of how integration can work in the real world and community.
We also gladly discuss these issues and subjects with our audience and workshop participants, our shows and workshops become a natural and relaxed setting for these discussions of sometimes hard and complicated issues.
In the foundation of Hip Hop, and Freestyle Phanatix, stands the motto: Peace, Unity, Love & Having Fun. And there is no room in that for destructive opinions and intentions. For us integration isn’t a problem it is an asset! We are a group of free and different individuals, both women and men, who of a matter of course see individuals without the need of labels such as; skin color, sex, religion and background. The artists’ positive expression and the groups dynamic has on a natural result – a working equal diversity.
Vi er en skole for unge med specielle behov; autister, down, omsorgssvigtede og sent udviklede. Det kan være svært at finde et undervisningsniveau som motiverer alle elever, men det formåede I til fulde. De tre undervisere, I sendte, havde den blanding af kompetence, empati og vild energi som er specielt vigtig for vores efterskoles unge.-Birger Bovin, Lærer/Projektleder, Karise efterskole
