Flycat, the pseudonym of Luca Massironi, is one of the main representatives of the first generation of street artists and writers in Europe. His numerous trips to East Los Angeles, his ties to the greatest masters worldwide, and his deep passion for graffiti led him to write his Manifesto del Futurismo Celeste with the objective of giving back to each individual letter its own expressive autonomy.
He has been the focus of numerous art shows both in Italy and abroad, giving great attention to the social-cultural side of his art: in 1998 he held the first Spray Art course at the C. Beccaria Juvenile Penal Institution in Milan; in 2006 he was the artistic director of the show “Dal Muro alla Tela” put on by the FAI (Italian Cultural and Environmental Foundation); and in 2008 he collaborated with the Youth Ministry to create a discussion table about urban art. Additionally, in 2016 he was the first European artist invited by the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to hold a workshop during the eighth edition of the FADJR.
The mission at the heart of Theodora is to contribute to the wellbeing of children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centers by providing visits from professional performers who have been trained to work in a medical environment.
At the Theodora Children’s Charity, we believe that laughter is the best medicine. Our Giggle Doctors visit children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centers across England. By combining music, play, magic and storytelling these professional performers bring magical moments to brave children in challenging times. We believe that EVERY sick or disabled child should get the giggles that only a Giggle Doctor can bring.
Our Giggle Doctors are professional performers, highly trained to work both in the medical environment and with children with disabilities. They come from a wide range of backgrounds and bring with them a variety of skills (among our team are actors, entertainers, magicians, musicians and singers). The training consists of a rigorous schedule of artistic and medical workshops, which cover topics such as child development, infection control, child bereavement and the impact of illness and bereavement on families.
