HEY - Heritage for the European Youth

"HEY - Heritage for the European Youth” is a youth exchange that will take place in Alcoutim (Portugal) from the 9th to 19th of August 2019 with 55 participants and 11 team leaders from 11 different countries.

This exchange will give to the participants the opportunity to find creative ways through cultural and artistic activities in order to express themselves in the local community, not only with the body (through dance and theatre), but also with the mind (through sculpture, drawing or painting). This youth exchange will empower the participants to understand better the society, its cultural opportunities and the need of active citizenship in order to protect cultural heritage and the European values. Every national group had the chance to present the situation of cultural heritage in its community.

The objectives are to give to young people the opportunity to express themselves through artistic expression, like painting, video, theatre or dancing; raise awareness about opportunities and ideas aimed to active citizenship in their local communities; to open the mind of participants to multiculturality, social inclusion and democracy.

The youth exchange will give to the youngsters a better understanding of the society through different expression and communication methods, with several workshops.
