The project CulturArt combating youth unemployment is a multilateral exchange including 42 youngsters from Italy, Bulgaria, Romania, Macedonia, Estonia Latvia. The project will be implemented in POMPEI, iTALY from 8th until 16th of March 2016. The idea of our project is the result of the reality that we as groups of young people and students face every day- apathy of young people, the lack of alternative, youth unemployment. We want to show our peers that there is an alternative. So we start with art, culture, crafts and youth unemployment as the main themes of our youth exchange called "CulturArt combating unemployment The main aims of the exchange are :-to encourage participants to develop their talents in the field of art and culture -to show them different alternatives to fight the youth unemployment-to encourage intercultural dialogue-to develop young people`s knowledge, skills and competencesThe youth exchange is entirely based on non-formal methodology and includes a variety of methods. The participants will have the chance to learn about arts and crafts, and culture from different countries, develop their knowledge, skills and competences, become more tolerant, open and aware of their own and other cultures. The participants will have different discussions, presentation, forum theater, meeting with local entrepreneurs in the field of art. The participants will also acquire knowledge and practical skills for traditional art and crafts from Italy-there will be for example visit one of the oldest pasta factory in Gragnano (just 5 minutes from Pompei), discover the ancient art of ceramics and local crafts, such as the production of wicker baskets, and produce some objects with the help of volunteers from neighboring cities, learn to make a real Neapolitan pizza, flavor it and bake it in a pizzeria in Pompei which will provide everything free. Participants will also organize an open bazar to show the local community what they have created. The participants will also create a video and a newspaper out of the project.
