Faro Project - 2nd transnational event
31 May - 1 June (Lousada, Portugal)
Within the Faro Project, a transnational event took place in Lousada, Portugal from 31 May - 1 June 2022. Delegations from serveal European countries visited the Portuguese city to participate in the event.
The PEOPLE Project has completed its first transnational event in Labin, Croatia. From 5-7 April 2022 delegations from several European countries visited the Croatian city of Labin to participate in the event.
Every partner in the project has worked with young people in the preparation of several cultural products that have been collected and presented during each international event, which in Labin took the form of video presentations and a photo exhibition. Whilst every partner focusses and presents its own specific theme, special attention was placed on the topic discussed by Labin: the discrimination, repression, and eventual persecution of the Jewish community in the region. Young people from the local high school created an impressive and highly professional video which told the story of the Holocaust as experienced by men and women who inhabited their town, and some still do.
