OMG! (Other Museums Generation!). 2018 European year of culture and heritage: Youth in action at the Museums

On the occasion of the celebration of 2018 as the European Year of Heritage, the Spanish National Agency for Youth organise this TCA activity with the aim of providing tools to youth workers and leaders of youth organizations, in order to work with young people with an approach to art and heritage.

During this 4-day training course, contemporary dance, comics and different aspects of art and heritage as a tool for change and social reflection will be worked on in different days. We will develop non formal activities with young people in order to discover the cultural heritage, creative process as methodology to work with young people; we also generate spaces for reflection and creation in order to design common strategies with young people
