CULTURAL CONSTRUCTION OF YOUTH & YOUNG CONSTRUCTION OF CULTURE IN FRANCE

10 Youth Workers selected by the City of Cape Town and 4 Artscape Employees are taking part in a cultural exchange between Artscape Theatre Centre (South Africa), Barefeet Theatre (Zambia) & Samba Resille (France).

The programme aims to renew participant’s pedagogical approaches and analyse various works regarding public politics in Europe and Africa, focusing on questions about trends of youth culture and obstacles limiting culture access. The stakes analysed in the preliminary works led the consortium to build a programme targeting the needs observed in each of the organisations, to give space to creativity, to adapt to the needs of participants, to incorporate the experiential knowledge through innovating numerical certifications, and to empower the spirit of enterprise and initiative. This program planned 40 days of strengthening skills activities and 30 days of mobility for youth.

The South African Group departs Cape Town on Tuesday 26th March 2019 from 21h00 (Departure Time: Midnight) for France.

The final leg of the project is taking place in Toulouse, France from Wednesday 27th March 2019 to Friday 5th April 2019.
