Practicing Peace with Music
Start date: Jan 1, 2015, End date: Mar 1, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The project is took place as a youth exchange in between the dates 1-10 March 2015 with the participants from Bulgaria, Poland Croatia, Czech Republic, Italy and UK. Through this concert within the project, our goals are; to contribute to peace, to raise consciousness about conflicts in Turkey, EU and neighbouring countries, to prevent the increasing racism and discrimination with the participants from different cultures and conflicting countries. By doing this in a disadvantaged region like Muş, we promoted Erasmus+ Youth Programme and its opportunities in Europe to local young people with less opportunities. Most of the participants are disadvantaged young people who haven't been abroad before, and are willing to improve themselves in the subject of peace.During the project, non-formal learning methods are used. Participants from different cultural backgrounds shaped a diverse group. In this way, participants learned from each other. Role plays, case studies, group works, visual presentations, simulation games and outdoor activities took place during this 10 days long exchange. Objectives of the project, -To consolidate European values such as tolerance, respect to diversity, democracy, human rights and to create a European awareness among the participants. -To improve dance, music, painting, theatrical skills of the participants and to show them how to use their skills to contribute to peace. -To be the first of the projects those we are planning to carry out in the future, as a start. -To increase the number of young people who benefit from these programmes by promoting youth programmes, to involve disadvantaged young people who have difficulties integrating to social life and/or who haven't participated in an exchange programme before. -To gain awareness against discrimination as European citizens -To encourage active volunteering in non-governmental organizations. To ensure young people are sensitive individuals towards problems around themselves as active citizens. As a result of the project, the participants became more sensitive to cases of discrimination, and they are willing to work on the subject of peace. At the same time, visibility of Erasmus+ Youth Programme increased in Muş, locally. In the long term, we expect possible benefits such as; -Contribution to Erasmus+ Youth Programme by local disadvantaged individuals in Muş. -Contribution to societal peace in the future through the new projects of the participants against discrimination and about the subject of peace.
