Q&A (updated as of 27.07.2018):
Q: Could you please explain more detailed regarding deliverable nr.6: Artistic performance - ”The artistic performance on the World Children Day 2018 can be theatre, musical, flashmob or any other type of activity”.
Please let us know what do you expect:
- Should be produced a song (video spot) or theatre performance with many artists/dancers?
- Could be a well known song/artist or theatre performance presented on WCD?
- Should be rented a venue for this event/concert and for how many people?
The bidders are free to come with creative ideas. The artistic performance should be meaningful in the context of the campaign - #ENDViolence in schools and it also should be designed to be participative for children and youth. In practice it would mean that we are expecting a technical proposal that will briefly describe what you plan to do. You need to think how you will involve the children and young people and what will be the scale of the event, eventually, you can also describe its potential for scaling up.
For example, you can ask children and adolescents to develop a play script on the topic of ending violence in schools under the guidance of a trainer and support them to stage a theatre play in a school, indicating in your proposal that the play can be later performed during an event, or in a local theatre, or in a national theatre. If you want to attract well known musicians, actors, writers or other performers to the exercise you can definitely do so, keeping in mind your financial proposal as well. The renting of the venue depends as well on the concept you will be developing – if you are looking to do it in a school, it would not be needed, otherwise you should propose a solution.
