Come to the South London Gallery to see the first screening of the Street Training documentary. It talks about the Street Training we've been doing internationally since 2002 and about the team I've been training with in Camberwell. We are now in top form ready to train policy makers, police, planners, architects and developers. Our first engagement will be to train Southwark Police in February 2010.

see you there - Lottie

On November 19th 2009 Fabio Salvatti led a Street Training session in Curitiba, Brazil.

The session was part of Festival de Cultura do Paraná, a huge event that gathered music, theater, visual arts, dance, performance and eco-politics.

This was the first session that happened in Curitiba, in which were trained different street skills, such as domino supporting, tree climbing, hide and seek, etc. The trainers were very enthusiastic about it, and plan to continue with regular sessions.
