Animepaf

description of organisation

Anime has developed a cohesive work since 1997, using entertainment, training, social inclusion through art and local development projects, working with the youth of Quinta do Conde, to develop values such as solidarity, citizenship, community participation and social acceptance.
Our action takes different forms, adjusting not only to the specific needs of the target group or communities involved, but also to different environments, by developing distinct activities using cultural, sporting or pedagogical themes.

In a partnership with Sesimbra’s Town Hall we have been developing cultural and educational work with our youth, we have many different activities: leisure, youth meetings, exhibitions, community events, art expression, drama, body expression and also have sporting activities to take place in stores named “Onda Jovem” (Youth Wave) like chess, football, soccer, climbing, canoeing and traditional Portuguese games. Volunteers will be integrating this work team and will develop these and other activities. Our organization has established a partnership with the two of the county Youth Stores, one in Sesimbra and another one in the Quinta do Conde. Adding to this we also have CIPA, a center for local institutions to gather and exchange ideas, projects and services.

Currently Anime has six different projects:

Training: The Anime project develops training courses in socio-educative areas; creativity and artistic Expression areas, techniques and resources and specialty courses.

Musicarte: A music recording and production studio to help and support local bands and music projects.

Loja Onda Jovem: Community space for youth, maintained by the Sesimbra City Hall in partnership with Anime. Here we develop a variety of activities with the youngsters who attend the place (from 6 to 18 years old).

Mercado Jovem: Outlet store and art workshop where old objects are recycled through art and restoration techniques learned and shared among the local community. Several events are organized in this space to promote good practices like solidarity, recycling and social intervention through art.

Animenatura: Study and exploration of local fauna and flora (Coina stream), by organizing pedestrian circuits involving the local community. Identify and catalog the species of local fauna and flora, so as to gather the knowledge of the potential of local biodiversity of Quinta do Conde. Our work has already been credited a major finding, a fish species that is endangered and protected.

CIPA - Centro de Inovação e Participação Associativa (Innovation Center and Associative Participation)/Clube Unesco Anime: created by the Sesimbra City Hall, CIPA is a place to promote innovation, entrepreneurship and the affirmation of new associations in their first steps of life, by providing collective use of equipment and logistic support where they can share ideas and develop projects. In CIPA, we are developing a Unesco Club since 2013. The main objective is to develop activities to promote Unesco values and principles, through creative and innovative methods amongst the local community.
