YOUTH EXCHANGE, Corbeni, Romania – 2019

 

About the project

Through this project, we want to contribute to reducing the level of social exclusion, stereotyping and discrimination, by photography and promotion of European values.
From our experience in working with young people, we discovered two things, on the one hand, the access to photography – wherever they go, people are making, either with mobile phones or with professional devices, photographs that illustrate places, friendships, or experiences, often used as a way of communication on social networks. However, educational systems in Europe marginalize or even ignore the arts (plastic, musical, photographic etc.) in the process of learning, although many studies have demonstrated the importance of the arts in the intellectual evolution of young people. On the other hand, the issue of social exclusion at the European level still reveals the need for action and involvement in diminishing it despite the European Union’s sustained efforts.
