BFFT supports Colorance Day 2014 in Ingolstadt
Sports, music and art – all with an aim towards inspiring children and young people in a new popular culture, Colorance Day was launched last year in Munich, setting a clear sign for greater tolerance. On Tuesday 22nd July, the initiative against racism made its second appearance and was held this time at the Ingolstadt Municipal Theatre, where up to 2,000 schoolchildren celebrated together. The crossover event was organised by the Officer for Popular Music of Upper Bavaria, Matthias Fischer, and the music and sports teacher Gregor Fabry.
Ingolstadt schoolchildren awaited a diverse mix: With talented young bands (Adore Me Not from Ingolstadt and Alien from Burghausen), from a professional freerunning troupe (Lazy Basics from Hamburg) to international sports stars (Audi DTM Champion Mattias Ekström, ice hockey players from ERC Ingolstadt and the acrobat Kai Hou of “flying Chinese” fame), Colorance Day brought together these different areas of popular culture.
BFFT also supported the event, in addition to AUDI AG and the Ingolstadt Department of Culture. BFFT presented itself on location with exhibits, an iPhone-controllable R8 racer and ERC Ingolstadt ice hockey contests. BFFT is proud to be a partner of an event that teaches personal responsibility, future-oriented thinking, respect, tolerance and openness to other cultures.
