Description of the project
ArteD is an initiative born from the need identified by three youth organisations from different European countries of improving youth work and enhancing its capacity to become a social inclusion tool and a means of artistic expression. The COVID 19 pandemic has also shown that young people are strongly attached to new technologies, and are able to make the most of them and use them in a wide range of fields. In the same way, art has proven to have an essential role in our society, being a form of cultural expression, of personal expression and even an essential tool for mental health. Merging these two fields results in the concept of digital art, is still an undiscovered terrain, an artistic discipline with a promising future. ArteD seeks to emphasise motivation, active citizenship, belief in oneself and the empowerment of youth work as engines to improve the social inclusion for the youth.
