Since its foundation last year, the United World Organisation e.V. had its premier with the first public appearance on the Street Festival in the Mainzer Straße in Cologne last Sunday.
The UWO-Team presented itself with great enthusiasm together with Artisto on a colourful information stall. Curious people found answers to their questions, children painted brilliant pictures, collecting boxes were filled, approvals for membership were filled and other artists were inspirited to spontaneous initiatives.
Furthermore, the group of volunteers grew, which begins at the moment with a five year old child and does not end with an 80 years old man. Everybody is welcome, it does not matter if you are white or black, gay or straight, foreigner, native or refugee. The performance of Artisto with the Ukrainian kids with the song „Revolution Ukraine“ was the highlight of the organisation’s program in the late afternoon.
Thanks to all donors for their support! We are happy to push the current project „Streetkids“ with the donations. Many thanks also go to all the engaged helpers, donors and sponsors.
A very special thank is due to Michael Tomanek from Jidokan, who initialised the event and good purpose. Furthermore, we thank Robert Christott and Simone Wechsler from the Theater Academie Cologne, who made the contact to Michael Thomanek.
All in all, it was a great festival with a wonderful atmosphere. We would be happy to come again.
