Intercultural Performance For Social Change! | Youth Exchange
Dates: 21 October – 01 November 2018
Venue: Bremen, Germany
Organizer NGO: Shelter international
The main aim of the „Intercultural Performance for Social Change!“ youth exchange was to empower and equip youth with the competences needed to find creative solutions for social issues and various forms of communication that touch people on deeper levels of consciousness. e.g. through art and culture. Together we discovered and explored traditions and habits behind the stories of young people with different experiences and backgrounds.
Within this, we sought:
– To support and encourage the beauty of diversity and the benefits of intercultural dialogue with arts and non-formal education methods among young people from different cultures
– To enhance creativity, self-confidence, and self-discipline among young people and local students through performing arts.
This youth exchange will brought youngters from Spain (4+1), Italy (4+1) Lithuania (4+1), Turkey (4+1), Portugal(5+1) and Germany together. The age of the participants was 18- 30 and one group leader from each country with no upper age limit.
