DEADLINE 25.07.2018. reclaim the CRAFTS: call for participants

Aim of the project “Reclaim the crafts: in search for shared values through creative activism” is to empower young people to take active and responsible role in their local communities.

Our main mission is to start a creative dialogue between generations and cultures, that will lead to developing hybrid-crafts and reclaiming public, common spaces, through mixing traditional crafts, that are losing actuality within younger generation, and street art as well as other "public space" art forms. Street artists and traditional craftsmen/ women are to mix their knowledge and possibilities in developing new ways of preserving and updating traditional crafts so that they become interesting for the newer generation and is seen as part of creative activism and active citizenship practices.

We are looking for 25-35 years old “agents of change” with civil engagement experience and access to the local community from Germany and Ukraine.

The young participants will engage themselves as “multiplicators” that will spread the knowledge, skills and ideas developed during the project in their local communities. Furthermore participants are required to participate to the master-classes with handcrafters and prepare and take an active role in the swap markets of knowledge and skills. The participants will be invited to adapt creatively the knowledge acquired during the master classes with handcrafters and present it during the public events in Berlin and Kharkiv.  More information in the Call For Participants!
