The YE “Soul Connection 2” is a project dealing with dance choreography as a tool for expression of one’s opinion on a given matter. This is a follow up project from Soul Connection 1 that was great success. The aim of this youth exchange would be to draw a choreography picture about how young people see poverty and marginalized groups in their countries and how they see their inclusion in the mainstream society. Participants would use dances from national popular cultures as ICL methods to present the gravity of how people in poverty and in excluded social groups live in their countries and how they understand poverty and social excluded groups through dance. Using dance as a tool, it will challenge assumptions about gender, ethnic identity, political, religious and cultural context in which lives are lived in the global European society. The participants would have the opportunity to perform the dances for inclusion during the projects in front of the audience. This regions have been witnesses of conflict and with this youth exchange we will manage to give possibility to youth from Europe and EEC to work together on a topic that is important for all of them. . The youth exchange will be from 04-12 June 2014 and will include 63 youngsters and leaders from 7 countries from Europe and Eastern Partnership: Georgia, Armenia, Turkey, Spain, Lithuania, Bulgaria and Czech Republic.
