Funny people, crazy smiles, exciting experiences, new friendships and unending nights.

We have a new international project accepted. And that is what “A look into the superstitions” going to mean for us and for all the participants. We are anxiously waiting our friends from Bulgaria, France, Spain and Italy to meet us here, for 10 days full of superstitions, art and creativity.

The project will take place between the 12th and the 21st of August 2009 (10 days), in Bran – the city of traditions and myths – and its main goal is to develop the communication,comprehension and the tolerance between the participants while fighting against prejudices, stereotypes and discriminations by revealing superstitions through creative art (photography, filmmaking).

One of its objective is to create a community in a learning environment. We will also contribute to the personal and social development of the young people involved in the youth exchange and encourage a long-term partnership between the countries. In order to achieve our goal and to attain these objectives we will use several working methods like: workshops, outdoor activities, round tables and role-play games.

So stay tuned for more informations, because we are planning to „bake” tons of surpises.
