New KA1 Project: MAD for Culture
We’re happy to announce that we got a new KA1 approved!
MAD FOR CULTURE (nº 2018-2-ES02-KA105-011418) is a Youth Project that brings together people from different European countries in a 5-day program of activities on cultural heritage and traditions, to improve European citizenship, youth participation and transnational unity. The main objective of this KA1 is to deepen the knowledge of European cultural heritage, trying to understand the differences and common origins of different EU countries, focusing on the interrelation of different traditions that made the EU one of the most heterogeneous and rich cribs of the world.
This project will be held in Madrid, Spain and it is funded by the Spanish National Agency of the Erasmus + Program and will bring together 42 young people from 7 different countries: Spain, Holland, Italy, Portugal, Greece, Norway and France, aged between 18 and 30 years.

The main activities of the “MAD for Culture” project will give participants the opportunity to know the importance of cultural heritage through tangible culture (such as monuments, landscapes and works of art) and intangible culture (such as folklore, traditions, language, and knowledge).
Participants will have the opportunity to reflect and discuss the subject and explore different cultures and backgrounds through the arts used as a tool to share and create traditions. The activities aim to make young people appreciate the richness of their environment and develop an awareness of the local, national and international heritage.
