Colors of Cultures
Start date: Jun 17, 2014, End date: Jun 16, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

"Colors of Cultures" Youth Exchange took place in Arry, France. It brought together young people from five European countries: France, Estonia, Czech Republic, Slovenia and Spain. We used photography to explore, learn and share knowledge about our communities and overcome racism and prejudice. We strongly believe this is very important now during the increased xenophobic discourse in media. The youth exchange aimed at spreading tolerance and dialogue between peoples and communities, encourage youth participation in social matters, intercultural dialogue. Each national group brought with them pictures of their communities from four thematic areas: people, places, celebrations and problems. During the seven days of the exchange we shared and discussed their pictures and related to them the issues. We also offered to the participants technical and creativity-boosting workshops to enhance their skills. Participants used their new skills to photograph French society and fight against racism. We also organised an exhibition of all their works. We used social media (Facebook and Twitter) to gather audience for the exhibition and we used Tumblr to spread the works and our anti-Racism campaign.
