The main objectives of the project is to give youngsters with fewer opportunities chance to learn and explore, to endorse them to be active citizens of the society, promote diversity and social inclusion by using street art, to prevent the radicalization of socially vulnerable young people, to promote European values and to give young people clear understanding what is othering and how mass media and radical organisations using it for their own purposes.

Impact

Over the course of the project, the participating young people will get a better understanding why inability to accept diversity is often leading to discrimination and othering which will make them more open for new things around as well as other cultures, religious and points of view. The participants will be actively involved in implementation of the sessions and creation of street art objects.This first, for many of them, step will arouse their curiosity about the world, desire to get to know more and bring them ideas what they would like to change in their communities/surroundings and how they can do it.
