In Guatemala the meeting with artists in the framework of Local Activities I of our Project “Inclusion through Urban Art & Folk Music” has been carried out the day 12th of January 2018. Youth workers, social educators and youth leaders who are also artists were invited to share their experience and to know more about our project. We want to underline that all participants are from medium and low sector of the population and they understand the importance of art as a tool for inclusion and social transformation.
During the debate, participants could reflect about the importance of combining talents and ideas during the implementation of activities and/or project, as well as the importance of collaboration with other people from different backgrounds. On this way, there are more possibilities for their personal and professional development. Participants understood that this project can help them to acquire new competences and improve their skills and knowledge in different topics and it can give them a possibility to cooperate and exchange their good practices with organizations and people from other parts of the world.
