This project will involve 35 people, aged between 18 and 25 years, 4 youngsters + 1 leader from each country, fulfilling gender balance condition.

We decided to meet a total of 35 youngsters to represent through creativity and entrepreneurship topics regarding social exclusion, discrimination, gender equality, xenophobia and racism.
The main theme of the project will be realising a public action against discrimination and pro european awareness implemented through volunteering.

We will organize workshops, role play, outdoor activities, ice breaking games, round tables, in order to build a team with our participants.
Informal learning is desired for the participants to acquire new skills, contributing to their personal development.

We want to promote active and European citizenship among youngsters and persons who are not familiar with the Youth in Action programme. In order to do this, we planned to organise a “Street action” that will involve all the participants and will expose a youth blast of changing the world. We want to draw attention to the discrimination of minorities and to underline the importance of volunteering.

We will make our own “Street Action”, in our own style, but we will try to involve each country specific issues based on the participants proposals.
In our opinion, this project will improve the racial and religious respect. By the youngsters active participation in the project “Be active, be creative” we expect awareness of the social and cultural reality.

To be or not to be

The project “TO BE OR NOT TO BE” is realized in Craiova, Romania from the 13’th to the 20’nd of october 2010, being a multilateral youth exchange that brings together groups from Romania, Poland, Italy, Bulgaria and Czech Republic.

This project involves 30 people, aged between 18 and 25 years, 5 youngsters + 1 leader from each country, fulfilling gender balance condition. Also each activity will involve gipsy youngsters from Craiova.

All participants are interested in art theatre. We organize workshops, role play, outdoor activities, ice breaking games, round tables, in order to build a team with our participants.

Informal learning is desired for the participants to acquire new skills, contributing to their personal development.

We promote active and European citizenship among youngsters and persons who are not familiar with theYouth in Action program. Also, the final demonstration, that will be on 19 October, will involve all participants and will expose a drama in english, in front of an audience. We want to draw attention to the discrimination of gypsy people, in our country and in Europe. We will invite the gipsy community to take part to our role play.

We decided to inspire our own play from the movie “Satra”, directed by Emil Moldovean Loteanu in 1975. The movie “Satra” is inspired by the opera same named. The script is based on several short stories of the russian writer Maxim Gorky. The action took place in early twentieth century, in the russian province Bassarabia. The movie presents the love of the beautiful gipsy, Rada and a horse thief, Luicu Zobar, as described Maxim Gorky, at the beginning of his novel.

We will try to acknowledge the citizens regarding the existence of a gipsy culture, and the positive things representative of this ethnic group.

We will make our own role play, in our own style, but we will try to involve each country specific theatre art based on the influences of the gipsy culture.

In our opinion, this project will improve the racial and religious respect. By the youngsters active participation in the project “TO BE OR NOT TO BE” we expect awareness of the social and cultural reality.
