Parents who take their kids to cultural and music festivals can immerse their kids in a healthy social environment. They can meet other parents at these events, giving children from different walks of life a chance to play and engage with one another. Cultural events can help to promote cohesion across communities in society.
Real engagement happens when people are entertained and inspired by cultural commonalities. When kids attend cultural events, they can observe the lives of real people, and they can share in the cheer and celebrations with their friends and family.
Families who participate in cultural activities can follow social media channels like Facebook to read about the stories and ideas being shared that will add value to their lives. Communities want to share stories online, and this is what social media should be all about.
It is crucial that kids learn about their cultural heritage as it can spark healthy engagement and interest. Music festivals highlight how ordinary people in a community are doing incredible things, and this will evoke children with a sense of pride about where they are coming from.
Cultural events can teach kids about taking the initiative to reach out to individuals in real life or through social media. Community events can create awareness about community issues and achievements that people care about. This will teach kids about showing concern for issues in the community.
The most successful festivals and cultural events are entertaining and educational for the target audience. Children can find fulfillment and joy when listening to music or a live performance on stage.
The goal for parents should be to remain active in their communities. Children who get exposure to music and cultural events may grow to learn about the value of cultural heritage. Read our story to find out more about the IDRS 2019 Music Festival.
