“Employability for all” Youth Exchange 08-17 March 2018, Larnaca, Cyprus

Story Highlights

youth italyYouth in Art: Painting an Inclusive Europe is a youth exchange that will bring together 35

young people (5 participants from 4 EU countries: Italy, France, Spain and Greece; and 5 participants from 3 Meda countries: Morocco, Tunisia and Egypt plus the group leaders). The activities, which will last for one week, will be held in Cagliari, the main city of the island of Sardinia, door and harbour of the Mediterranean Sea. The implementation of the project will be facilitated by the numerous accessible theatres and open spaces which will serve as venues in the city itself.

In an era where the expression of culture is creating conflicts, misunderstanding and violence we want to gather together young people from the opposite sides of the Mediterranean Sea, giving them the possibility to explore the multicultural dimension through different arts. Participants will be involved in a creative and artistic dimension where they will be able to express themselves and the culture they represent helping the communication and combating the exclusion and marginalization.

The participants will come from backgrounds that have been linked with social exclusion such as those who have dropped out of school, the long term unemployed and those lower on the socio-economic scale. Each group will be lead by a young person currently working in the field of social inclusion in order to provide direction to the young people and share best practice. The overall focuses of the project will be to explore, raise awareness of and fight barriers to social inclusion that are central to the participants, and to propound the cornerstone European values of solidarity and brotherhood especially with young people from another continent so much linked with Europe.
