Everycolour ‘Dare to Dream’ in partnership with Kick It Out
Everycolour have released a video celebrating their work during the 2016 European Championships with four primary schools in Manchester, as they encouraged the nation to ‘Dare to Dream’.
Supported by Kick It Out, Everycolour is a peer education initiative that celebrates all that is good in football, encouraging values that tackle discrimination. During the summer Everycolour worked with over 250 schoolchildren from the four primary schools as they followed England at Euro 2016.
The Everycolour choir launched the project in May, singing their England anthem ‘Dare To Dream’ at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium. The choir then returned to Manchester City Women’s Academy Stadium in June, singing the day before England’s match against Iceland.
In between the choir performances, pupils used their creativity to produce blogs, giving their views on a range of issues from football to diversity.
Two Everycolour bloggers had their interviews with Manchester City and England midfielder Jill Scott published in First News, the national newspaper for primary schools.
Another initiative saw The National Football Museum host an Everycolour event, with Clive Tyldesley, ITV Football Commentator, judging a commentating competition.
Working alongside Kick It Out, Everycolour will return next year as it aims to engage with more clubs and schools to follow England at UEFA Women’s Euro 2017.
