To be best at things you do, you have to do what you love. It is a quote we often hear in many situations but lack courage and guidance to do what we do best. A lot of young people in Europe (especially Poland) are independently engaged with one of the 4 elements of hip-hop (dance, music production and singing, dj-ing, drawing - graffiti). But they lack inspiration and entrepreneurial skills in order to turn “love” into means they can use to earn for a living. Our partner organisations are also involved deeply in entrepreneurship and have dance studios (Poland - Hip-hop Aka Demia), music studios (Croatia - PMP Studio), event management company (Hungary - The Company), design brand of clothes (Bulgaria - Flavor House) and can offer participants great examples and support. Partner organizations have enough expertise and experience to develop and improve participants entrepreneurship and initiative competences. Objectives of the project ˝Hip-hop entrepreneurship˝ are;* To change the way participants look at their hobby and start thinking about turning it into a business* To empower participants with entrepreneurship and initiative competences* To empower participants with digital competences and ICT tools which can help them with business ventures * To inspire participants and develop initiative attitude with good practice and peer examples* To involve participants in project of their interest where they will cooperate with their peers from other countries, improve cultural experience and do artistic activities they love to doBackground of participants will be youngsters involved in one of elements of hip-hop while we expect more than 60% of chosen participants to be youth with fewer opportunities from 18 to 30 years old. Activity is youth exchange which involves 34 participants and 4 partners from Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary and Poland. Venue of activity is Warsaw city and planned dates are 13.08. - 20.08.2016. Project consists of two leading parts; learning and practicing entrepreneurship and organizing artistic hip-hop activities.Methods of learning will be learning by doing, peer to peer learning, group work, research, discussion, role playing, demonstration and lectures. Tangible results of the project are; music video spot, song, youthpasses and multimedia from the project (photo and video). Intangible results of the project are participants acquired/improved entrepreneurship and initiative competences and digital competences (knowledge. skills and attitudes) and raised cultural awareness. Impact of the project is entrepreneurship and ICT competent participants self-confident to make a living out of their hobby and skills. Social inclusion of participants with fewer opportunities in international project and raised awareness of entrepreneurship approach and tools in hip-hop community. Potential longer term benefits are increased rate of self-employment of the youth, reduced rate of unemployment among young people and increased rate of young people among entrepreneurs.
