<b> Our message

Developing life skills on common grounds to build community resilience

Connect

Take this opportunity to join others, make new friends and connections for your future.

Learn

Absorb new skills with a hands-on approach, learn side-by-side with others and enjoy the knowledge and experience offered by the experts of the field.

Have Fun

And of course don’t forget to enjoy yourself. Because work, is not all there is to it.

Our Objectives

Youth expression and social inclusion

Engage, train and mobilize artists/cultural workers currently in limbo, undertaking an active and leading role as enablers of creative resilience at local level.

Local empowerment and community resilience

Provide life skills to members of local communities through artistic expression, approaching creativity as a resource for building resilience.

Active citizenship and artistic creativity

Connect local artists, community organisations and citizens through inclusive co-creativity hubs, to practically apply life skills through creative placemaking efforts, promoting active citizenship.

Share the love,
Give back to the community

Artists find a leading social role in building community resilience through arts and citizens acquire life skills (self-regulation of emotions, flexibility, communication & collaboration, digital content creation, critical and creative thinking).
