Hope Tour 2019

Established in 2014, the Hope Tour schools program aims to encourage and empower students to grow their resilience, self-belief and confidence.

This year Kulture Break is bringing a message of hope to ACT schools with a tour that will feature international guests ‘The Nubian Gents and Feminine Fire’ from New York City, led by prominent school teacher Lamont O’Neil. Accompanying Mr O’Neil will be seven of his past and present students that have been transformed by his philosophy of overcoming adversity through skill, and developing character through self-expression.

The Hope Tour school presentation will be a highly engaging and interactive dance and music display mixed with powerful words of inspiration and empowerment that will leave students feeling encouraged and hopeful.

Francis Owusu, CEO and founder of Kulture Break, believes creating environments that encourage positive self-expression is a powerful way to empower and transforms individuals.

“With depression, anxiety, suicide and social isolation prevalent in today’s society, hope is something every young person needs. Our emphasis is on using early intervention measures that validate and affirm young people’s abilities and capacities. Our goal is that young people believe in themselves and live life with purpose.”
