Next week between 15-19th August we willl be running daily workshops for ICAN, the International Cultural Arts Network, in Northern Ireland. The aim of ICAN is to facilitate the exchange of skills and knowledge between international and local community arts practitioners who use The Arts, in all its form, as the neutral vehicle to bridge barriers between current and formerly conflicted areas world-wide.
Here's a nice little video and photographic summary of the Ecce Parkour event we ran in Rome in May, with Team Members Forrest, Alli and Chris leading the workshops throughout - great weather, great people, hard training and lots of fun. Click here to watch the video.
The highly anticipated and successful Morzine Parkour camp will be kicking off next week and this is a last reminder for anyone wishing to go to get their bookings in before we have to switch off the paypal link on the page. If you've previously paid a deposit and are still needing to send the remaining balance then it would be best to get that in over the weekend too.

Between July 22nd and the 24th, Parkour Generations will be sending a small three man team over to our friends in Wisconsin, U.S.A to run some intensive Parkour workshops. Some of the Wisconsin Parkour organisation were present at our events in Ohio earlier in the year and also attended our A.D.A.P.T. Level 1 Qualification course. We're very happy to be heading out there to train with the entire group and visiting a brand new community.
Following last week's American Rendezvous II we will be heading back to the United States next month to run a weekend training event for hosts Wisconsin Parkour on July 22/23. This will be the first time we have taught in Wisconsin, and we are looking forward to working with the community there which is led by a small but dedicated group of ADAPT coaches.
Next month we will be appearing at the Crossover Youth Culture Festival in Dortmund, Germany, on June 18th. The festival is a celebration of youth culture, from rock to rap, skateboarding to parkour, street dance and more.
