Youth exchange “Artify the Frames” is going to take place from 1. till 8. August 2016 in Žetale, Slovenia. The youth exchange will connect 35 participants from 6 different countries: Estonia, Bulgaria, Greece, Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovenia. Our reliable partners will provide participants, who will be youngsters interested in different aspects of art, artists, art workers, or other youth workers, volunteers, who want to improve their understanding of limits through art. The main aim of the youth exchange ''Artify the frames'' is to redefinate the concept of freedom, and to overcome personal and social limits through art. Various workshops, activities and creating art itself will bring us to the main goals of the project, which are to raise up and discuss questions about freedom and limits of freedom, to strengthen European citizenship and identity; to increase active participation of youngsters in society; to promote equality and inclusion of people with fewer opportunities; to foster understanding of intercultural context among participants and to promote creativity of young people. Because of the NGO's unique location (near Schengen border), we will also criticaly disccus and conncet the project to the refugee crisis. Art and projects products are going to be shown at the final event ''Art Camp'', which will also be the main outcome of the project and which will educate the participants, local and wider community about the role of European union, our common space and meaning of freedom and different limits of freedom for the future of the union.
