COOLTOUR – FESTIVAL OF CULTURE FOR CHILDREN – FARO
This campaign aims to strengthen the 4th edition of the COOLTOUR Festival, that has been growing year by year. This growth can be seen in both numbers of children and families which come and enjoy the festival as well as in the diversity and quality of the activities.
LEARNING WITH YOUR MIND, HEART and HANDS
The Festival is anchored in Education through ARTS, NON-FORMAL education and FORUM-THEATRE to debate relevant topics for the younger public. In previous years, the themes were “identity”, “the power of image and publicity”, “human diversity”, “family”, “digust and taboos”.
The younger public is invited to experiment, act, dance and play by travelling through an interactice maze – this year, the Futuremaze – while he/she learns with his/her experiences. The Forum-Theatre is a key methadology in promoting the participation, as the spectators are also the creators of the conclusion of each act.
This year the MAIN THEMES will be the Ria Formosa and its inhabitants, memory and the power of money. The themes work as a transversal axis by which the majority of the events are organized.
The 2016 PROGRAMME will include:
A themed multi-sensoral JOURNEY – Futuremaze – where children will be able to interact with a wise stork, a clever chameleon, a very old crab and a machine which registers dreams for the future.
A kids SHOW in the form of a giant telly – TV Futurex – where themes such as the power of money and friendship will be debated and also where children will be able to meet the famous Sab E. Chão, especialista em educação (Professor Know-It-All Educational Specialist). TV Frentex 2015 teaser

With the COOLTOUR festival we aim to:

INSPIRE and foster debate and activities post festival within the family and school contexts.
STIMULATE the cultural life in Faro, giving visibility to practices and local cultural projects.
Help CREATE new cultural habits and ATTRACT new public including all young spectators such as the gypsy community in Faro, who have been a part of the festival since the very beginning.
The COOLTOUR festival will take place on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th of November 2016 in various locations in Faro.
