Arts and Culture over the Borderlines
Date du début: 1 sept. 2016, Date de fin: 30 juin 2017 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

Our project “Arts and Culture over the Borderlines” aims at bringing together young people through arts and helping them understand both different cultures and disabilities. As it is, Varsinais-Suomen Kansanopisto is a small folk high school which already brings together people from various backgrounds in its student body. Through the work of the volunteers, we will increase internationality and cooperation with people from various cultures in our school. The project will continue throughout one school year and it will include two volunteers from Germany and one from Hungary.The volunteers will be working primarily with the students of Varsinais-Suomen Kansanopisto in realising different projects: a project of visual arts or photography with Make up & Theatre line, band projects and concerts with the Pop & Rock students, plays with the Musical Theatre group, and various other projects that are realised by our students, such as children’s events or school festivities. Through these kinds of art projects, both the volunteers and our students will learn about planning and organising different events and projects and also about cooperation and group work.The volunteers will also be able to visit different places in Paimio to talk about their culture and their voluntary work. As Paimio is a rather small town, the volunteers will be able to offer many local young people a unique chance to meet young people from other European countries. Simultaneously, the volunteers will get to know more about Finnish culture and participate in different activities in the community. As an example, they can work together with the local workshop for unemployed young people to promote voluntary work and to participate in projects there, or visit the language classes of the local schools.Through working in these projects with different groups of people, the volunteers, the students and the personnel of our folk high school as well as other young people in Paimio will be “crossing borderline
