Romanian NGO "Mod of Life" is planning the project "PiEceS", a youth exchange, which aims to explore and build up the capacity of young people with fewer opportunities through. During 11 days 30 participants with fewer opportunities, will implement the activities in order to achieve planned objectives using different non-formal methods (role playing, discussions, working groups etc).
Participants will get a chance to get to know each other and their culture and express them using various forms of art (photo, video, theatre, dance and drawing). Art will be used in a framework of social inclusion so the organizer will provide basic knowledge about this topic, as well as the practical skills of how to produce different artistic forms. Participant will be divided in groups of interests which each group will develop one piece of their common vision of society, making a puzzle, using the above mentioned forms of art. As a final product, participants will have final performances presenting the artistic result of common vision based on social inclusion which will include local community.
