in Barcelona, Spain

Aims & objectives

- To analyze the work situation of young people nowdays and to make them aware of their role as European citizens; to develop new strategy for social inclusion of youth through arts, as well as to discuss the concept of volunteerism, especially in relation to the possibilities to reward and recognize activities of this type.

- To develop individual values​​: the personal challenge that propose different theatrical disciplines help us to develop the spirit of excellence and self-confidence; to improve self-esteem; to develop a sense of security and risk; to discover our capabilities and our limits; to develop creativity.
