“Alternatives”, second meeting of the network Youth4culture

The second meeting of the Youth4culture network takes place in Paris January 9, 10, 11.

During 3 days, Youth4culture welcomes its 14 European partners to discuss the “Alternatives” for culture and arts: alternative creations, alternative funding, alternative places, alternative educational methods…

This is a theme somewhat provocative but very promising at this difficult time for Europe, aims at building a brighter future for arts and culture on our continent.

It also reflects our strong commitment to defend the voice of the young people of Europe, to promote their capacity to create and innovate, and to encourage the emergence of news cultural models, more inclusive and more open.

7 artists and 7 students or young professionals of culture will represent 7 city members of Youth4Culture – Brno, Prague, Barcelona, Madrid, Bratislava, Venice and Strasbourg – to share their experience, take part in the debates and work together on “alternative” solutions.
