Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for a Youth Exchange called “Not Bullying, Let’s Art” which will take place from 24th September until 04th October 2018 in Malaga, Spain.
#NBLA (Not Bulling, Let’s Art) is a youth exchange within the frame of Erasmus + related to Arts and Media as a way to face bullying and promote social inclusion.
Nowadays Visual Arts and Media are strong instruments to drive our emotions, spread a message or reach people but, at the same time, it’s useful to work about “old” disciplines like painting and sculpture and make the participants experiment several ways to make art.
Our project will consist on creating different artworks, the participants will participate in three main workshops: video, theatre and plastic arts and they will create respectively an advertisement, a short theatrical piece and paintings/ sculptures.
During the project also groups of young people with functional diversity will be with us, learning together about how to stop bulling and promote social inclusion of all people, whatever our skills are.
The group leaders will take part actively in the leading of the workshops, so it’s very important that the partner choose somebody with strong competences in, at least, one of the three main disciplines: painting/sculpture, videomaking, theater.
We intend not only to sensitize and understand the concept of bullying (through meeting people related with the topic) and its sad consequences, but also to propose a new way to make Art so that the message will catch as many youngsters as possible. Besides, for us and for our society, the most necessary is that young people understand that they are not alone and that they can find a way to face this problem, defending themselves and not feeling with no way out.
This event will bring together 42 participants from Estonia, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Romania, Macedonia and Turkey. The event will be held in English. There are 6 vacancies available and participants should be from 15 to 21 years old.
The Erasmus + Programme will cover 100% of the accommodation, food and activities and will reimburse 100% of the travel costs for the participants – up to 515 euros. There will be a participation fee of 40 Eur. per participant.
All the interested people should fill the application form below.
Application deadline: 23rd July 2018
