erasmus + project
General intention and educative purpose:
Considering the increase of the social, economic and cultural divisions in many countries, that create situations of failure, marginalization, and risk among the youth, the partners of the project "Musical postcards" wish to act and support teenagers facing difficulties on the personal level or with their environment (disabilities, social difficulties, intercultural conflicts).
These youngsters are not just a vulnerable audience in the phase of self-construction, but also a rich human resource for their desire for independence and their life experience. By our youth exchange project, we aim to promote better understanding and appropriation of their surrounding and reciprocal life, in their constraints and difficulties as well as in their potentials. Music or dance listening and practicing will contribute to this exploration, developing transposable skills and acquisitions facilitating their learning and interaction within social and cultural distant groups.
The exchange will be an opportunity to initiate a new learning process for young people and to value the importance of artistic and cultural practices in terms of intercultural experience.
