The Street Exchange Project
This project has now ended
Parkour is a relatively new sport that utilises urban spaces for physical activity, perform skills such as, vaulting, balancing, rolling, and leaping to move over obstacles. We aim to encourage resident's to participate in a range of coach-led group Parkour activities. Students will learn the fundamentals of Parkour: Physical, Technical and Mental preparations for training safely, in and out of sessions.
Also our aim to tackle wider issues such as community cohesion through social inclusion, group exercise and participation. Furthermore, we seek to reduce the behaviours of social isolation as a result of social norms due to Covid-19. This Project is being funded by the LCPG Reconnect Programme.
