Let’s get cultured

Project description: Nowadays young people tend to forget their cultural backgrounds due to the pace of progress in the last decades. Experience in the youth sector and project management have showed that unfortunately it is very rare when newcomers to such international projects have solid knowledge about other cultures, usually its limit lays within the stereotypes, rather than aspects of culture. “Let’s get cultured” is a youth exchange that will connect young people from 8 European countries (Estonia, Macedonia, Spain, Austria, Hungary, Czech Republic, Turkey and Lithuania) to explore traditional cultures and celebrate diversity of cultures in Europe. The working schedule of the youth exchange will consist of various practical and active workshops devoted to dances, national stories/legends/fairytales, traditional games and music, traditions of important celebrations like Christmas, Easter, wedding and cuisine.
