Results from the Erasmus+-project ‘Art Neighboryouth’ will be shared during this mini conference. ‘Art Neighboryouth’ stands for art projects organised by youngsters, questioning social topics in public spaces.
The last two years, we have organised community art projects with young people, initiated by youth art organisations and youth worker educational organisations. These projects took place in Slovenia, Serbia, Bulgaria and Belgium. The involved youngsters used artistic methods to research social issues, paying close attention to social interaction within various groups of people. The public space offers an ideal social laboratory for these projects.
At the mini conference we will share the methodologies, cases and ideas we developed during the 2-year-project. Also we will explain the success factors and the difficulties of the artistic cases. During the conference we will share these aspects in workshops, at roundtable moments and with an inspiring lecture about the whole project. All partner organisations will be present to share their views on the project.
