Being able to coexist, cooperate and communicate with people from different cultures became the norm in today’s globalized world. Nowadays, people easily move from one place of the globe to another, for various reasons. And even though we all come from different backgrounds, have different social norms, habits and beliefs, we must find understanding and respect among each other. But, our human world is a mixture of people where each of us is biased with our own outlook on the world in which we reside. Thus, getting in touch with other cultures different from ours makes us understand ourselves better and appreciate cultural differences. Being interculturally competent represents a huge asset for both personal and professional life of people today. Therefore, the main goal of the project is to promote understanding and collaboration between countries and cultures using music, dances and other artistic forms as a tool for breaking down barriers between young people from different backgrounds. Given that, we want to show young people coming from different parts of Europe that they can combine their cultures, backgrounds and talents and create something unique with mutual effort. In that regard, participants will organise a Final public event where they will represent different cultures with performing music, dances, and other artistic activities in order to show locals how important is to appreciate cultural diversity.
