SHORT DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT: Media Diet is a nine days long (plus two days traveling) youth exchange which will take place in Hungary, Baskó from 31th of July to 9th of August.
The participating countries are Germany, Italy, Czech Republic, Ireland, Denmark and Hungary.
The project is intended for 36 participants and 7 group leaders. The participants between age 17-26 will have the possibility to discuss big questions of life and to express their conclusions by artwork. There will be discussions about how is Europe nowadays, we will examine the differences between collectivism and individualism and talk about the role of family, friends and relationships.
In every evening we will process the topics that we had discussed in the morning, and transform it into art (stencils/screenprinting, painting, creative writing/slam poetry, dancing). Participants will get the possibility to create something individually and together. These art activities will be lead by art expert participants from the different groups.
An other specialty of the exchange is that during the program we will be without Internet and mobile phone, in an offline mode, this way there will be a possibility for the participants to concentrate to the present project. The experience of this will be processed in the exchange.
Our aim is to make the participants to live in a more conscious level in their everyday life. We would like to popularize art, and give space to learn new competencies and raising creative confidence. We will examine how does online lifestyle affects our every day life.
