The young people were selected
from 3 main projects with which Iko Poran work:
Danca Pra Galera, Nós do Cinema,
and Spectaculu. Six groups of five people were
created, and each group was lead by one Portuguese-speaking and
one non Portuguese-speaking volunteer. Each group had two preparatory
meetings to stimulate thought before the forum, and then two workshops
following the event to consolidate the accumulated ideas and information.
