These difficulties are reflected to a greater extent on young people with fewer opportunities who rarely have the possibility to be involved in socialization experiences that enhance their self-esteem.
The objectives of the project are:

- To allow young artists to make a comparison and exchange focuses on the difficulties and on the solutions adopted to promote their presence and their ability to act in their life contexts.
- To increase the blog "Artist for Europe”, creating an international ex-change and knowledge network related to future artistic creations of young people, in which will be published notices concerning residences, contexts, awards, casting, courses, etc… related to the various art forms in their respective countries.
