This project wants to take advantage of the potential that culture and art have in attracting attention and put it into use addressing social problems our society is facing.
This project will address the problem of social inequality and how it affects young people in Europe.
We believe that the voice of young people who are also victims of social inequality should be the loudest.
Therefore, with this activity, they want to give a chance to young people with reduced opportunities in life, and show them the skills and knowledge they need to have initiative and work in the field of social artistry.
The participants will learn about concept of social artistry, acquire basic knowledge about cultural management, get encouraged to implement the knowledge and skills acquired during the project in their local environment and enrich and revive the cultural offer of their community.
