We (d²) + ing = trends across the cultures
Start date: Aug 1, 2010,
The name of this multilateral 9-days youth exchange is "We (d2)+ ing = trends across the cultures". "We (d2)+ ing = trends across the cultures" means that our wedding is in fact: (we) as partners are in the dialogue of diversities, which is one of the most important trends in modern cultures. As well as the more obvious cultural differences that exist between people, such as language or music, there are also great varieties in the wedding traditions and customs among cultures, ethnic groups, religions, countries, and social groups. That's why the main aim of the project is to develop solidarity and promote tolerance, foster mutual understanding between young people in different countries through exploring cultural diversity, through social inclusion, active and creative participation in intercultural dialogue and finding innovative solutions of the common problems in gender relations, women rights and poverty. 37 young people from Macedonia, Serbia, Albania, Estonia, Lithuania and France will meet in Macedonia. Using methods such as experiential learning, theatre, pantomime and intercultural learning we will try to find differences and similarities between understanding of young people about relationship, gender roles family, marriage and wedding traditions. Results of exchange will be presented in a street-performance "Wedding of my dream" with local people and in a photo exhibition showing Innovative ideas about modem wedding that can be used as a learning material about participating countries.
