Art4Act

About This Project

The Art4Act project aims to design, implement and test innovative non-formal educational practices and methodologies in the field of youth work, aimed at promoting an open and inclusive society in which every citizen can take an active role in shaping our societies’ future. The 8 partner organisation from all over Europe and North Africa, working in the field of participatory art and culture, want to take action against the dramatic increase in hate speech, xenophobic political discourse and islamophobia, to which especially the young generations are exposed nowadays.

Art4Act intends to counter these tendencies by using performing and visual arts, and non-formal education as a tool to engage young people in creative and hybrid processes and promote freedom of thought and expression, intercultural dialogue and understanding, social inclusion and respect for others, as well as to combat discrimination against diversity in all its forms.
