Czech children's home turns Prague streets into summer camp, complete with parcour, this Thursday

4.6.2018 15:33
Stav Beztíže (
Stav Beztíže ("State of Weightlessness") - an afternoon outdoor program for children in Prague's Vinohrady neighborhood, 7 June 2018.

On Thursday, 7 June the playground near the Vinohradská vodárna tram stop in Prague will be transformed during the afternoon into a place of amusement and motivation, called "Stav Beztíže" ("The Weightless State") where parcours masters from the In Motion Academy, rappers Rest & DJ Herby, singer Jan Bendig and other performers will encourage children to pursue their dreams, to minimize the risks of spending time outdoors on the local streets, and to spend their free time meaningfully during the summer. How far one can go doing what one enjoys will be demonstrated by the performing artists and athletes.

Under the direction of professionals, visitors will be able to attempt parcour tricks, join a street football tournament, or compete in facepainting and makeup application. The afternoon events begin at 15:00.

The aim is to support youth who customarily spend their free time on the street to find a meaningful way to do so that will not generate conflicts or risks. The event is organized by Beztíže (Weightless), a specialized department of the Home for Children and Youth in Prague 3- Ulita.

That department runs two drop-in clubs for children and youth in the geographically-adjacent neighborhoods of Prague 2, Prague 3 and Prague 10, providing programs in the field for that same target group and many other preventive activities, including trips out of Prague. Fun motivational events like the one on Thursday are designed for young people who spend their free time on the streets, who frequently become bored, and who are led to dangerous ways of amusing themselves as a consequence.

At these events the children are able to get inspiration for how to spend their free time and to meet some of their idols who support them in their interests, while the public will see what the children have already learned from the diverse workshops offered by Beztíže. Young people who are taking advantage of their services are involved in designing the program of events as a community, thanks to which they are able to attempt collaborating, organizing, promoting and taking responsibility for a big event, learning new skills in the process.
