The project aims to conduct a youth exchange in the city of Madrid, which encourages collective creation and mutual understanding among 12 young residents of Madrid and 12 young people from London, enabling young artists from disadvantaged population groups to discover new cultures, customs and lifestyles.
It will last for 12 days during which the young people will transform cultural diversity into a tool for identification, appropriation and inspiration, becoming aware of the different social and cultural realities that exist in Europe.
Collectively they will create two (2) songs and two (2) videos (cinema-quality format), making art an instrument of cultural and social inclusion to improve the level of artistic and personal skills. They will be motivated to improve performance with regard to foreign languages, especially in spaces that promote peer learning and promote active participation in an informal environment with reciprocal values, thoughts, feelings, traditions and beliefs.
A video documentary of the development process will be produced, along with a radio show in each city and an event in Madrid, showing the methodology and gathering information to improve the quality of future interventions by the two organizations. These activities will include interviews with the young people, which will allow them to be recognised as sources of knowledge and the protagonists and engines of action. This will have a wider impact in their communities and social circles, showing that they have decisions in their hands that can affect not only the future of the city in which they live, but also the future of the nation and Europe.
