YOU ARE

Youth Opportunities through Upcycle, Art, Relations and Equality

EU YOUTH STRATEGY

Aligned with the EU Youth Strategy 2019-2027, “YOU ARE” is committed to promoting active citizenship and fostering young people’s sense of initiative. With a focus on promoting inclusion, diversity, common European values, digital and green skills.

YOUNG PEOPLE

The young participants, aged between 18 and 30 years, will hail from the vulnerable contexts of Italy and Luxembourg, where it is more difficult to find opportunities for involvement in European projects and mobility schemes. 

 

GENDER STEREOTYPES

The participants will receive guidance in crafting diverse sculptures, each dedicated to a distinct female figure. The objective is to challenge gender stereotypes by employing art as a potent medium of expressive communication.

WHAT WE DO

Aligned with the EU Youth Strategy 2019-2027, “YOU ARE” is deeply committed to promoting active citizenship and fostering young people’s sense of initiative. With a focus on promoting inclusion, diversity, common European values, civic engagement and participation, the project will mainly address gender equality by nurturing artistic, relational, digital and green skills.

The participants will receive guidance in crafting diverse sculptures, each dedicated to a distinct female figure who has played a pivotal role in culture, society, politics, or science. The objective is to challenge gender stereotypes by employing art as a potent medium of expressive communication.

The sculptures will be fashioned using upcycling techniques, offering a dual purpose of demonstrating the potential of waste for artistic expression while symbolically representing the revival of these women’s stories. This approach emphasises that discarded objects can find new life beyond their original purpose and underscores the concrete stories of these women who have been overlooked in public discourse
