In order to walk towards this aim, the concrete objectives were tackled to: - Bring young people together in a safe environment to learn from each others cultures and traditions and “perform together” - Getting empowered through learning about musical and artistic expression - Learning about cultural habits and history of different countries - Learning to work in an international group in order to create a performance as one group as a result The main activity of the project was a 7-day youth exchange between the 3 partner countries (Potugal, Romania, Finland) in Valongo Portugal from 23nd - 29th of march 2016. The Youth exchange brought together 36 young people + 2 leaders per country to learn from each other, using music and rhythm (and other arts) as a method of youth work.
