Past Events at Project Commotion
Safety Crawl: Play for Preparedness 2015
The Safety Crawl on Sunday, November 15th, hosted by Project Commotion and The Go Game, was a wild success! The goals of the scavenger hunt were to bring the community together in play, learn how to be better prepared for emergencies, and support Project Commotion’s fundraising goals; mission accomplished!
A total of 61 people participated in the event, which involved splitting up into teams, winning prizes by completing fun, safety-themed activities around the Mission neighborhood, and learning important emergency preparedness tips along the way.
A big hooray for all the teams who participated!
And a big thanks to Jenny from the Go Game and all our Safety Crawl sponsors:

Share the Love 2014 & 2015: Sharing the Love of Movement and Community
For two years running, Project Commotion has invited youth and their parents to SHARE THE LOVE in February with a fun–filled day of workshops, feasting and talent-sharing.
2011 Fall Fundraiser
Our 4th Annual Fall Fundraiser was a special celebration on many levels. The evening paid special tribute to Nina Mogar, Professor of Child Development and Family Studies at City College of San Francisco. Co-founders Chagua and Susan presented Nina with La Traviesa del Año 2011 award, with dozens of Nina’s friends, colleagues, and students coming out to show their admiration for Nina. Nina was the true celebrity of the evening, also doing us the honor of cutting the ribbon to PC’s new PreSchool, Las Luciérnagas.
Criança Esperança, February 18 - 21, 2010
Criança Esperança, open to all youth ages 4 – 18 with all levels of experience in capoeira, provided a fun-filled weekend of capoeira, music, dance, games, and crafts, led by some of the most outstanding teachers of capoeira who work with youth and families in the Bay Area and beyond! Over 40 youth students from San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, and Arcata participated in the event, ending with a great Sunday-afternoon capoeira roda led by the youth themselves.
In addition, Project Commotion hosted a Teaching Seminar for Adult Capoeiristas and Youth Capoeira Encounter. This 4-day event was the first of its kind, beginning with a training seminar in PC’s philosophy, and followed by 3 days of classes and fun activities for youth and their families, led by experienced youth instructors and professors of capoeira. The classes served as an experiental lab-setting for seminar participants, to exchange teaching techniques and perspectives on how to support children’s learning and development through the great art-form and culture of capoeira.
