Case study: Roots and Routes

A lot of projects in the field organize social activities to display the skills of social, economical and cultural disadvantage people. The projects organize an activity where young and talented people can perform and show their talent to the public. But most of the time, after the performance, the activity stops and there is no follow up for the participants to develop their talent to a professional level.

Most of the talented people need help to get their skills to a professional level. The gap between the art of the street and the vocational education is to wide. Therefore its hard to become professional for people with social, economical or cultural disadvantage. This also shows in the conservatory where 80 to 90% of the students are white and wealthy.
This is not a proper reflection of the population.
