Building Creative Bridge -2.part
Start date: Jan 1, 2015, End date: Jan 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Building on the successful project in June 2014 in the small town of Puerto Real in Spain, young people from local organizations met in the project our Czech group. Activities were focused on creativity, mutual understanding of both cultures and common creating a graffiti on a building in this city. The project had great deal of support and publicity of the local authorities and the press. A close cooperation between the two organizations and friendships between the members of both groups was established. In this follow-up project, we intended to further develop our cooperation and to continue the activities that we see current and necessary for young people in both organizations. Our project will was held from 3th to 12th July 2015 in Prague and in a chalet in Krkonose mountains. Both groups from Spain and Czech Republic participated in this project. Both groups were integrated and in both groups were involved participants with disabilities and socially disadvantaged people. Both groups consisted of 28 participants, two of them were project leaders. In both groups, all participants have already participated in the previous project in Spain. The topic of our project was creativity and mutual understanding of different culture, for these ideas we used the theme graffiti. In Prague, we explored the positive and negative effects of street-art and its expression and participants discussed this topic. In the second part of the project, both groups traveled to the mountain chalet, where they were accommodated and where creative workshops and outdoor sports activities were held. The artist of the Spanish group processed graphically suggested topics by participants, the whole group then created a billboard on a selected topic.. The project contributed to the personal development of each participant, to strengthen his creativity, social communication and cultural awareness. This was crucial especially for people with disabilities or for socially disadvantaged.
