The main European artistic event for the youth in Girona and Vilanova is getting close


This summer, around 120 young Europeans from 15 different countries will participate in Creativity.cat Act for Interculturality, which is the main artistic meeting for the youth at a continental level. Neagènia Intercultural, partner of iwith.org, is going to coordinate this meeting, which gathers participants aged from 18 to 30 years, with the aim of encouraging creativity, interculturality and public-spirited participation.



Creativity, an event that was born five years ago, will be organised for the first time in Catalonia, Spain, by young people from the region. It will take place from the 6th till the 15th August between Vilobí d'Onyar (La Selva, Girona) and Vilanova i la Geltrú (Garraf, Barcelona).

The 2009 event’s theme is “intercultural learning and active participation”. Creativity evolves from a set of seven artistic workshops (theatre, circus and acrobatics, Web design and multimedia, photography, video, music and dance). These workshops and the headquarters will be placed at the “casa de colonias” (colonies house) Can Solà de Vilobí d'Onyar from the 6th till the 14th of August . The young participants will be able to carry out an intensive work in some of these disciplines, under the supervision of professionals from different countries. The event also offers a final festival which is open to the public and will take place at Vila de Vilanova i la Geltrú´s main square on the 14th of August at 18:00.

Objective

Creativity.cat - Act for Interculturality combines learning and artistic stimulation with the coexistence of young people from different cultural origins. The project has been financed by the European Union, together with the contribution of the Vilanova i la Geltrú Town Hall and the Generalitat de Catalunya (Catalonya´s regional government).

The Catalonian company Neagènia Intercultural, a partner of iwith.org, is in charge with coordinating and carrying out the project in Catalonia, also with the support of the Greek organisation Kids in Action.

Creativity is an event that is open to young people from all over the world, as well as a space and a moment to develop one's personal skills and creative expression through alternative artistic means. The participants experiment the cultural diversity through informal education methods, in order to boost and enhance positive feelings like solidarity, respect for diversity, pacific coexistence and active participation.

Creativity’s first occurrence was in Greece in 2004 (Creativity I, Peace and Solidarity); that was an original idea by the organisation Kids in Action. Ever since this first experience and due to the success of the next four series, Creativity has become the point of reference for European projects for the youth.
