Annual European youth meeting

Announcements

1_youth_meetingSince 2003 CTP organises each year an Action1 in the context of the European Programme 'Youth' (now Youth in Action www.neagenia.gr). This year, we invite 35 young people (18-25 years old) from Albania, France, fYR of Macedonia, Germany, Greece, Kosovo, Luxemburg and Serbia Montenegro to participate in a meeting titled 'Breaking Barriers through Music'.

The aim of this unique project is to bring together groups of young people from different backgrounds for a musical conversation. Music will be a tool

rather than a goal in itself. It can be used to make people aware of their own cultural background, history and traditions. Through workshops, presentations, conversations and discussions people will be surprised and confronted with each other. Beside, the participants will have the opportunity to get to know the Prespa area and culture as well by excursions, field trips, games and recreational activities. The impact of the Action 1 however will not be just limited to the participants in the activity, but it aims to bring the concept op Europe to the local communities involved and promote more positive awareness of other cultures.  Therefore we will be working together towards a result in which the colour of variation will unite us all which will be presented in the form of an open air concert in which all are invited and involved.

Action 1 – 2007
29/06/07 – 12/07/07
«Breaking Barriers through Music»


Music is among the most powerful tools to express ourselves. It’s the language of the soul. No matter who you are, or where you come from; everyone has a sound, a song that touches the heart.
The 29th of June the Cultural Triangle of Prespa will bring together a group of 35 young people from Albania, France, fYR of Macedonia, Germany, Greece, Kosovo, Luxembourg and Serbia around the theme ‘Breaking Barriers through Music’.
Music will be a tool rather than a goal in itself. It will be used to make people aware of their own cultural background, history and traditions. During 12 days of intensive training, workshops, presentations and discussions participants will be confronted with each other and with themselves. But above all they will learn to share their similarities and celebrate their differences.
The impact of this project will not be limited to the participants in the exchange. It will be an outreaching activity in which the local youth will be invited to participate.
The final result of this musical conversation will be presented in the form of an open air concert in which all are invited and involved. The performance will take place in the square of Laimos in Prespes on the 11th of July.
