Source: http://aafmafa.org
Organised by FLUXLAB Association in partnership with GEYC, it is a Partnership Building Activity of the Youth in Action Program. Twenty youth workers (2 for each partner association) coming from ten different European countries: Bulgaria, Estonia, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland and Turkey, belonging to cultural and youth associations or International Non-Governmental Organisations, will gather together in the city of Torino (North-West of Italy) from the 1st to the 7th of September 2013.

What is the aim of this project? 
The aim of this meeting is to create a valid partnership between the participating groups. All participants will learn how to create a good Y.I.A. training project and to use Art and artistic techniques for their work with youth. 

How will we do it? 
By using a short set of ideal training projects, created through discussions and brainstormings, by analysing and sharing knowledge in the use of artistic techniques (visual, sculpture, music and performing arts) in non formal education practices and by creating a network of associations interested in using and promoting them in the frame of the Youth in Action Programme and other Youth Activities.
