The other side of subcultures
Start date: Jan 15, 2015,
End date: Jun 14, 2015
The project entitled "The other side of subcultures" was prepared in cooperation with partners from Slovakia, Czech Republic and Hungary. It is a youth exchange program and 36 people will take part in it, at the age between 18-24. We put a huge emphasis on participation of young people in hard life situations. The project will take place in our hometown – Tarnów at 01-08 of March 2015 and youth subcultures are our central focus. Participants will reveal their true attributes, especially ideology, costumes, history and music. Main targets are following: enhancing awareness and knowledge in a subject of youth subcultures (some of them are specified), overcoming stereotypes, fighting with superficial judgments and prejudices. We are counting on international integration, safety as well as collaboration in a pleasant atmosphere. Moreover, we will be talking about social rejections and discrimination, to find out the reasons, consequences or the ways of preventing those phenomena. During the project we will be working with non-formal education methods, for example, workshops, intercultural evenings, Oxford-style debates, meetings with local people. Rising the awareness in terms of youth subcultures, discrimination, acquirement of useful skills in future career development, self-confidence improvement, language barriers overcoming are the expected results we want to achieve. The participants will get Youthpass and Europass certificates at the end of the project. As long-term benefits we can indicate the creation of tolerant attitudes or acceptance for youth subcultures. In order to spread the results of our work, we will create a video conference, a survey and a website.
