About the project:
It is a project focused with the main objective of raising awareness among young people about the importance of social inclusion through music. Intolerance can be fostered in many ways, one of them, as a consequence of extreme ideologies, where it is more than used the well-known hate speeches, fostering xenophobia and racism. All this generation of intolerance that leads to the existence of unjust situations in our societies. This intolerance can occur in different areas such as religion, culture, minority groups, race, etc. With this project we want to motivate participants to act, to fight against this intolerance, and to help create fair and equal societies for all people. To reach this main goal, a youth exchange will take place, as the main activity of this project, where we will work on a series of themes through music and performance, closely related to social inclusion. The topics are the following:
-Xenophobia and racism
In addition, we will not only work on the previously mentioned topics. An important part of the youth exchange will be based on improving the empathy skills of the participants, as well as their ability to express themselves, working on different aspects such as self-esteem and confidence.
