URGENT! 1. “Melting Potes” – France, Vaunières

When: August 4 - 25, 2014

Deadline for application: July 28, 2014.

Theme/aim of the project:

Structured around a time of local festivals, these meetings are occasions for intercultural exchanges and promoted cultural diversity through artistic experiences.

This project is once again this year an occasion to further interactions between people near and far, moving beyond stereotypes by the means of times of exchange of cultural identity and togetherness in creative projects and activities, as well as by collective living. In 2014, the choice was made to emphasize plastic creation along the theme of “early man.”

The focus will be on folklore surrounding early man and linked to pagan rituals and to early forms of clothing. As the countries of Europe are rich in these traditions, participants will first be asked to share stories of the early humans of their own countries. Working off of the folklore, legends, and traditions of each person, the participants will invent modern rituals, an imaginary collective folklore. In addition to this they will create plastic installations on the theme of traditional figures of early humans to modern humans. These works will be products of everyone's individual input and will be presented during the festival.

Number and age of participants: 4 participants + 1 leader from each country, aged 18-30 years old.

2. “Equality has no gender” - Portugal, Arcos de Valdevez

When: August 25 - September 01, 2014.

Deadline for application: July 30.

Theme/aim of the project:

We decided to create an exchange where we can raise awareness for young people to combat this type of discrimination, actions and participate in the adoption of measures to end the inequalities and contribute to a fairer and more balanced society.

The participants of our project are young people with economic difficulties and poor participation in the society where they live. It is intended that at the end of this exchange, they must have a more active participation in the society, which can reflect and create measures that meet the needs of the environment in which they live.

During this program, all participants will have the opportunity to meet and be in contact with the community (Arcos de Valdevez) having the opportunity to analyze the differences and similarities between their culture and ours. Throughout the exchange, activities will be carried out on the basis of non-formal education through workshops that will work initially to identify the concept of "gender equality" and later give them the opportunity to know if the social role they play may or may not influence their socio-economic progress. Afterwards, activities and group dynamics aimed at identify and combat gender discrimination will be created. These activities will be registered using  photos and videos. In the end, all participants will have to make a compilation of all the material and hold an exhibition in our association, which will then be used as an evaluation record of our exchange.

Number and age of participants: 4 participants + 1 leader from each country, aged 15-25 years old.
